    A "Thank you" on Thanksgiving Day

    On this Thanksgiving Day that the USA sets aside for us to reflect on all that we have to be grateful for, I would like to state my appreciation for ALL those people around this planet who have contributed to create this wonderful Linux computer operating system and the programs that run on it.

    Also thank you to the moderators and other very helpful people on these forums who graciously share their knowledge and advice to those of us who are less proficient now than they are and the bloggers and writers who also donate their knowledge.

    I am sure that others feel the same way as I do.

    Moved to the café because it's not a support thread.

    Thanks for the sentiments!

    Great; do you donate regularly? I donate small amounts to Canonical, OpenBSD, FreeBSD throughout the year; Theo states that if OpenBSD Foundation had just $5 for every download of OpenBSD, that project would always be able to operate normally and actually plan new development.

    Thanks to the mods for quick replies to our issues! I've never been left waiting
    for long. Also, for those who did not know what OpenBSD was, you probably
    should if your are using anything Linux.

    Cheers.

    I still do not understand this holiday. read about it but still don't get the logic behind it. I guess a family holiday it would seem. and shopping opportunity.
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?

    It's just a traditional American holiday, which was based around the autumn feast, and supposedly began in the 17th century. Most people did not survive the harsh weather here in N. America, thus obviously they were "thankful" just to be alive. Fast forward to now, and this holiday is just a typical commercially centered holiday focused on shopping and American football. I don't have much family, and I hate sports, so I am b-o-r-e-d on these annual Thursdays, but i do enjoy the endless rounds of IPA's.
