I am going to SHARE a comment posted on necopost.com by one of my reader who seem to be a Field Dependent Learner, which is OK.

Looks cool but the author, Mr. Salem R., misses the spirit of linux: sharing with others. If everyone, from Linus Torvalds to the creators of Gnome and all the great free linux software, just showed you the good stuff on Youtube but never really shared it with you, how would you feel, Mr. Salem R.? Maybe like many readers of your posts, waiting for months to get some meaningful how-to from you and getting nothing but some confusing mumbo-jumbo. What is the point of posting this, really? To show everyone how great you are? You may be great, but you are alone in the linux community and never really understood what linux is about.
I choose to reply to this comment on the front page in case someone else with similar misunderstanding opinion happen to exist.
Let me start by saying thank you for reading and commenting on my posts. Your comments are always welcome. Now, regarding your comment.
"If everyone, from Linus Torvalds to the creators of Gnome and all the great free linux software, just showed you the good stuff on Youtube but never really shared it with you, how would you feel, Mr. Salem R.?"
I would feel normal. Come to think of it, that exactly what happen with me. Those cool computer interface you keep seeing in those awesome science fiction movies, there are no how-to or actual working codes freely available to download for the public. I just saw them on my monitor just like you saw my YouTube videos. I got inspired, use my will to learn, understand and innovate. And end up making my own real cool working computer desktop, plus I learned a lot of new things in the process. It is a shame that you were unwilling to enjoy the same experience when presented with a similar situation.
"What is the point of posting this, really? To show everyone how great you are?"
All my "Cool Futuristic Desktop" are concepts. The best medium for SHARING them was YouTube. That's why they are uploaded to YouTube. the purpose was and still is to inspire and show the potential for future Linux Desktop design. So, the goals were fully met. I am just a simple innovative thinker. I am well aware of the capabilities of computers in our current time. So, as far as I am concern, I am still computer illiterate.
You accusing me of "missing the spirit of Linux". Well try writing your buddy Linus Torvalds at your "Linux Community" for an how to. You'll see how much "Spirit of Linux" he'll be willing to share with you.
Sure, I may be "alone in the Linux Community" as you tried to point out. But that is perfectly fine with me. Beside, I am a Field Independent Learner, I am more creative and learn better that way.
I am sorry to hear you have been "waiting for months" instead of trying to move forward with your own innovative design and learn a lots of cool stuff during the process. You do know it's actually possible to accomplish even if don't have some fancy computer coding, programming or design college degree. Technically, you have been waiting on yourself.
