Welcome to It’s MOSS

What is It’s MOSS? The name is a double entendre. My name is Moss, and I prefer MOSTLY Open Source Software. Also, I am not intending to step on the toes of Abhishek Prakash and his wonderful team at It’s FOSS, so I wanted to save at least one similar-looking domain name from being taken by haters.

It is my contention that Linux would have completely taken over the desktop world if one thing happened: We stopped hating on commercial software companies. If Linux users were willing to shell out money for programs such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, and others, there would be that many fewer obstacles to moving to Linux. And a big part of the problem is the Free Software advocates, who turn into fanatics at the drop of a hint.

If you’re interested in who I am, I recently published a blog at on my life in computerland (also published in Full Circle Magazine Issue #160) please feel free to read that.

If you would like to contact me to help on the website or submit articles, write me at As you can see, WordPress is not my strong point, so help with the design of this site is also appreciated. You can also reach me on the mintCast and Distrohoppers’ Digest and Linux Mint Telegram groups.

This website is not intended to be all about me, however. I hope to post top-quality articles from throughout the Linux community.
