Submission + - How Granpa met Tux the Penguin (

christian.einfeldt writes: "Ken Starks, of Austin, Texas, has been blogging (some would say ranting) for years about the ups and downs of moving to Linux. Now, Starks is hitting his stride with an entertaining story of how an 85 year-old graphics designer happened to meander by chance into the Life of Linux. Starks does a remarkable job of developing the his story's characters with sparingly few words and a well-placed photo or two. Starks writes with a wry wit and a great sense of pacing that reminds one of Mark Twain's style. Like Twain, Ken Starks is usually provocative, but always entertaining."
