When my computer boots I am presented with two options: Nirvana or The Ninth Circle. In the warped mind of the geek inside me Nirvana is Linux—where I am in control of my experience… The Ninth Circle is Windows, it’s not there because I enjoy it but a little sin is necessary. The reality is that installing Linux and setting it up the way I want it has become a tour of Hell, with out Vigil to guide me. But, least we forget Siddhartha nearly died on his journey to enlightenment. And really the path is the goal.
