OSlove

2017

OSlove reflects on the personal attachment to one's interface of choice in daily computing activity, a.k.a the operting system. Whether the shiny icons, or the familiar layout, or the tedious customization, there are features, or possibilities, or politcs that tie us to a particular set of applications and operating systems.
