"Thanks to the US's currently being gripped by its unprecedented and seemingly endless case of EDS
(electoral dysfunctional situation), I find myself feeling more and more like I've slipped into a parallel
universe or a really bad science fiction story where everything is reversed and the abnormal has become
commonplace. This frame of mind has me pondering some of the big "what if" questions about Linux and
the computer industry in general, and how a change here or there could have resulted in a whole different
story--or could still do so. Call it a new-found respect for the whims of probability and chaos, if you will."
