Comment Re:How I found Linux (Score 1) 136

I saw a post from this linux torvalas dude.
A month later I bought a PC.

I had minix floppys running, had the file system built and had been starting to build the gnu tools, and a co-worker Joe showed me SLS.

A week later, a bunch of us in the office made a bulk order for 200 floppies. It was much easier! It started as something like 15ish floppies, and was 70something floppys before the cd version came out.

Say what you will about the big telcos that have buildings and pop's in the area. They won't provide broadband. Yes they're there and selling services to businesses. they won't touch broadband though. That would create competition. The only way to open up competition will be to encourage small business to come in and provide a better product. The telco's would rather spend money on lobbyists then put fiber in the ground.
