I am Going To Break for 5 days

EDIT - I might be returning sooner than 5 days as I am finally calmed from the infinite comments, especially after turning off comments for those articles. I am looking for what to write about, and I might have a couple topics to look into.

The two articles I wrote about why Linux was successful, pushing me from maybe 500 views to over 100,000 in just a couple days. That said - a little overwhelming. I love those articles but I think the point of them being biased is just terrible. I am leaving not to work on my writing style - y'all can tell me what I suck at better than me - but rather to just think on what next. To be frank, I wasn't expecting the massive influx of viewers and comments and it got to the point where I just skipped comment after comment, and so I want to sit back and try to see what I can write about that would be more worthwhile than just what equates to me just typing out of my buttox with flimsy logic.

I found the response both heartbreaking yet amazing, and I will not be answering comments until I am back with a fresh mindset, read to take on the universe.

Thank you so much for your contributions. I know your posts blew up and it is unsurprisingly overwhelming. Following along the threads I saw that there were a lot of encouraging replies as well as some jerks.
