Jamie Zawinski QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And when the time comes to replace the O2 I have today, maybe my next machine will run Linux.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
Because, you see, what I want to do is to commoditize the OS. I want to have access to all the applications that I need to do the things that I need to do, regardless.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
I don't get much sense of reward from having discovered how to get the Foo card to coexist with the Bar card.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
I eat and drink at my desk, but I'm a tidy eater.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
I think Linux is a great thing, because Linux is an alternative to Windows, and because, of all the operating systems that are at all relevant today, Unix is the best of a bad lot.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski

Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
I use a really simple calendar program on my computer.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski

Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
If you give a cracker a new toy, the first thing he'll do is carve his initials in it. Fortunately, most crackers get over that once they're through puberty.

Linux is only free if your time has no value.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
Mostly I use the O2 as an X terminal, however, running my apps on Linux and displaying remotely.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
My one purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
Of course, all of the software I write runs on Linux; that's the beauty of standards, and of cross-platform code. I don't have to run your OS, and you don't have to run mine, and we can use the same applications anyway!
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
On the other hand, there would be some value in different folks getting together to share expertise and technology; but to the listener, it wouldn't necessarily seem like a single station in the traditional sense.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
See, unlike most hackers, I get little joy out of figuring out how to install the latest toy.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
Software Engineering might be science; but that's not what I do. I'm a hacker, not an engineer.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
The beauty of Internet (so-called) radio is that it doesn't use up part of the spectrum: unlike real radio, you can have as many stations as you want without one forcing another out, because they aren't competing for the limited real estate of the usable radio frequencies.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
The focus must always be on the task that the person wants to accomplish, to communicate, to learn, to create, to be entertained.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
They were lucky that Netscape self-destructed when it did, because otherwise they wouldn't have had an ending to the story.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
Using these toolkits is like trying to make a bookshelf out of mashed potatoes.
Quotation of Jamie Zawinski
Why should someone have to retrain themselves to use a new application that does the same basic thing as the old application, just because something as trivial as the operating system changed out from under them?
