Whatever works… is fine for other people. Not me, no, no, no. I’m really only in tech for love of the tools and the process. It’s craftsmanship! I fell in love with tech on a kooky old computer of seemingly alien origin called the Amiga, then it went away and I was heartbroken. Ever since, I’ve been looking to recapture that magic, and slowly but surely it has solidified around a minimalist sub-set of all the old’s kool stuff that’s been around forever, namely Linux, Python, vim & git.

Why is it even important? Because vendors pushing fads and trends keeps you always relearning and retooling. That’s how money is made. They don’t want you settling in on a small set of free and open source (FOSS) tools that will serve you forever in your career in tech for life. Where’s the money in that? Vendors have no interest in your skills consistently improving over the years with time-tested battle-proven instruments, having the same opportunity to focus on skills, craft and mastery as a musician or athlete.
