plastictree: plastictree news

This list shall serve for news and announcements related to anything published on my website (

I will write to this list when I add items to my website.

Others and I can write to this list in case we discover something interesting and want to let the rest of us know.

I suggest that the real discussions are made in public, preferably on the usenet. Pointers to such discussions, however, should go to the list.

What is about?

I use this website to publish ideas, facts and software related to computer usability and security. I focus on unix-like operating systems, while pointing out their advantages over Windows where it is appropriate. My aim is to create a framework which will make it easy to install and configure unix-like operating systems in a secure and minimalistic way, resulting in well-usable systems.

My site also provides some material on free software in general. The current threat to free software through software patents is one of the major topics.
