I recently created a new theme for my personal site*, and was struck anew by how many Open Source Software packages this site is built on top of. To name a few of the essential ones:
- Ubuntu Server
- See also: Firefox and Chrome browsers
In other words, every layer of the Web stack, which I use every day for fun and for profit, is powered by Open Source Software. It would be beyond impossible to deploy a website today with rich, interactive experiences without these fundamental pillars. I owe so much to Linux, Open Source, and Open Standards, and it is only right that I acknowledge this fact.
* Many thanks, also, to David Goines, who graciously allowed me to use his artwork in the new site design.
