I'm going over GGL after being away from it for a bit. More ACCâ„¢ (a thing's Candid Criticism):
In fact, the GNU/Linux system is a core component, which is branched off into many different products. They are called distributions.
Not many distros are products. A better word would be "projects", "software collections", or "packages".
http://www.getgnulinux.org/windows/ should explain breifly what source code is.
http://www.getgnulinux.org/switch_to_linux/from_windows_to_linux/ still has a space before a question mark.
Since you have source code, you can control everything in GNU/Linux, although most of the time you don't need to touch the source because it wasn't designed to restrict you.
The coypright symbol is incorrect for "Clippit the paperclipÂ©". I don't even think it's a trademark either.
(in fact you can browse the web with the exact same program, Firefox)
Change that to "(in fact you can browse the Web with the same program if you already use Firefox)".
â€” the time volunteers need to reverse-engineer WindowsÂ® drivers, .
Change that to "â€” time is needed for volunteers to reverse-engineer WindowsÂ® drivers, ."
[yes, even if you purchased your media entirely legally]
That should be surrounded by parentheses.
, but you are well informed when you do so
That should be omiteded.
It is precisely this difference and variety that participate in making Linux so special and interesting.
"that participate in" should also be omitted (and "making" changed to "makes").
When "internet" isn't capitalized, it can refer to any internet. To refer to the global Internet, capitalize it.
Once version 7 is released, change "Fedora Core" to just "Fedora".
The live cd absolutely rocks.
Don't hyphenate riskless.
or your own: strictly no installation means
"Strictly" should be omitted.
no one can buy WindowsÂ® or Microsoft Office: instead users purchase a permission to use them.
"No" should be capitalized.
Link the quote to the cited interview.
Yet, from the user's perspective, proprietary software is very different because of the restrictive license â€“such restrictions would be unthinkable on a car or bicycle, for example.
Get rid of the "from the user's perspective".
They used to work on a standalone basis, but have been intrinsically linked with WindowsÂ® - so they come in with every PC and no one can get rid of them.
Replace that hyphen with a dash.
Microsoft remains the sole organisation to understand how their products work.
Change "to" to "that" and "understand" to "understands".
Which would you rather trust? The package you are forbidden to study? Or the package with the ingredients?
Replace "ingredients" with "recipe".
There is much more to software than being trustworthy (being "Open-Source")
Don't even bring open source into the discussion of freedom.
Link to the citation in "Not a crazy concept".
they purchase music through iTunesÂ®, and then cannot play their music on a different music player
Chagne "different music player" to "music player other than iTunesÂ® or an iPodÂ®".
If you expand DRM to Digital Restrictions Management, expand TC to Treacherous Computing.
DRM shouldn't be in an <acronym> element in the TC section and in the conclusion. It's redundant.
Most of today's work documents are written and encoded with secret algorithms, in proprietary software.
Get rid of the comma.
Wheh, that took a while.
