In a post-PC world, my interest in computers and computer systems has been renewed by the abundance of low-cost, yet powerful devices that run variations of UNIX-like operating systems.  Though I am working with the OSX GUI mostly, I find that familiarization with Linux helps me bridge the gap between Windows, Mac OS, Android and allows me to identify and manipulate – copy/modify/etc – shared code.  Though individual command syntaxes vary greatly, their purpose as it relates to interaction of software/hardware components shares a similar logic.  Each process; each subroutine; each byte; can be identified and replicated on the other platforms…

Using a universal or unifying language can deliver the convergence of technology/device that major vendors have missed when evolving their market strategy around “the cloud” – what’s it all about?  In the end, it’s about access to information.
