You’re most welcome.
I think many Windows users are married to old verbiage they heard
years ago (some unfounded) about how you’ll need to learn to code or
have to learn language like the old DOS to make Linux work and so
propelled by fear they remain with Windows.
I’m looking forward to all the good work and advancement Eric (on this
list) makes with his foray into voice recognition but can you or Gary
on this list or others recommend any Linux-based voice recognition?
Nuance has dragged their heels in so many ways including developing
voice recognition for more than one voice at a time so I don’t feel
like I can count on them to offer a Linux-based version by 2020 when
MS is supposed to end W7 support.
Thanks for disabusing readers of their “Linux-fear” in your article
and for your and others voice recognition recommendations.
I started with computers when punch-cards were still common and
computers smaller than a refrigerator was not.
I wished I still remembered all the programming skills I have back then
[but that ended with the strokes]. Users are pampered with a GUI and
other "modern" items on their really small sized systems, compared to
what I started working with. You try writing a general ledger
accounting system from scratch in COBOL and then tell me that people do
not have it so easy now. Well, at least if you do not have to do the
GUI programming from scratch instead of using templates, or needing to
do AI work withing a game environment. But the basic business stuff was
much harder to produce back then when colored printing, or even
graphical printing, from a low to middle environment business computer
was not available at all. I was programming computers for over a decade
before I ever saw a colored printer, let alone afford one.
