Whats It all About?

Good question you might ask especially as I am a man from Scotland and not a Woman from Africa. The answer is probably an insight to the global mashup that we are all heading towards. The beading comes from my fiancĂ©e who is from Hungary she has a blog which specialises in beading. The Ubuntu connection is from one of those random Google searches which hit upon an alternative to Windows and the  rest is history. 

As a introduction for anyone who may be wondering what I am talking about with Ubuntu here is a short description. Ubuntu is an Operating System from South Africa, yes you heard me right South Africa which is also where the name comes from.  The name refers to an African Philosophy which in very simple terms is that you are not a human on your own you are only able to be who you are because of the people who are around you. Obviously the same goes in reverse the people around you are only who they are because of you. How does this relate to a computer Operating System you might ask. Well I tend to think of Ubuntu OS as a digital representation of the Ubuntu Philosophy it is Open Source so anyone can contribute to it and you can even completely remodel it and give it a different name almost every part of the program can be modified and you can bet that some one out there is doing just that.

Thats all for now folks
