Created a Linux distro for translators Jan 3, 2008

Baldwin Linguas is now sponsoring a new Linux distribution (compiled by myself)
for translators, including the tools that I use everday here in my work.
See http://www.linguasos.org for more information.
It's completely FREE!
You can try the operating system on your computer without affecting your current system,
even, because it can run from the CD drive without affecting your hard drive (unless you
choose to install it to your hard drive).
It contains office software, CAT software, and network/communications software on the CD,
and, if installed to the hard drive, additional software for multimedia and entertainment, etc., etc.,
can all be easily added, also for FREE, with a few mouseclicks.
So, that is my new service, a free service to my colleagues in the industry.
I have created the distro and will be maintaining it,
and it is offered freely for other professionals to try Linux out, and, for those that
already use Linux, like we do, it is a new distro that already contains that tools
they are most likely already using on a daily basis.

The new year hasn't kicked in yet for me Jan 3, 2008

I won't be back at full steam until after epiphany, since I live and work in Spain and am supposed to be on holiday until then (which hasn't stopped clients sending me "urgent" work on Xmas eve and New Year's eve!!
I reckon that's enough service for now ...

...as we are holding internal meetings these days to choose additional forms of added value we will offer to our customers. So this poll comes a bit too early for us!

Very Illuminating! Jan 4, 2008

Very illuminating - this is what I call right to the point: None of your business, mate, finding out about my new services.

I wish I could economize on words like Miguel. By nature, I suppose, I am verbose. Once I start a sentence my verbosiy takes over. I started with the very sarcastic title of this piece and wanted to repeat in the body of my contribution in emulation of Miguel. But I just could not leave it at that.

Miguel, amigo, I really admire your word economy.
