One thing I have yet to understand: Linux. I'll be very suprised if I don't get downvoted for saying this, but what's the big deal? I would really like to learn more about Linux, honestly. I just find myself asking *why* I would like to learn more about it. I have nearly no use for it, as I use my computer mainly for writing, reading E2, and modeling/rendering/texturing. Oh, and the occasional 3d game. Linux doesn't offer any solutions for me, as game support is patchy, support for 3d development software is even more patchy, and effective use of linux requires a good understanding and grasp of programming concepts. Well this is the impression I have gotten from reading about linux, and if anyone would care to show me otherwise I would be more than grateful.

The next thing I have yet to learn is why society rarely makes visionaries anymore. In history you learn of several intensely important people who pioneered the way for society through acheivements in science, art, literature, or courage. Modern day heros or heroines are segregated from society, make their living, then die. Songs arent sung about the genius of Stephen Hawking, the creativity of artists like Taron goes unnoticed, and the works of Bob Frissel are entirely forgotten. It would seem that society has had it's sense of wonder and compassion withered, or replaced with an overpowering need to belong, conform, and generally not stand out.

The last thing I have yet to understand, is why M$ doesn't make a powerful OS that's easy to use, bug free, and focuses on performance and functionality rather than make a massively redundant resource hungry monster like ME or the soon to come XP. I think if M$ gave people what they want and need they'd stand to make a lot more money. That's their goal, isn't it?
