The journey in Linuxville continues

Posted 07-06-2011 at 09:42 AM by ichase

December of 2010, I wrote my first blog about my thoughts in choosing a distro. It was called Linuxville
I read this blog again just recently and realized how much I have learned since writing it. I by no means consider myself an expert as in the grand scheme of things I have still only scratched the surface of the many things there are to learn when it comes to Linux.
In my original blog, I mentioned that I would like to eventually live in the Arch house but was intimidated by the fact that it was a major learning curve. Well, I have lived in the Arch house now for about 3 months and I love it!! It truly is a house with nothing more than a foundation (kernel) and a frame. I have since learned how to decorate it and modify it to become a very usable Operating System that suits my needs. One house I had not mentioned in my original blog was the Slacker house. I just rented one of those and must say, the learning curve is DEFINITELY back. But I started on this journey NOT to just switch from the Windows OS to a Linux OS but to actually LEARN LINUX. I have heard over and over that if you want to learn linux.....Install Slackware. Have heard the same about Arch as well.
The Adventure continues and I am not sure why at this point in my life (I'm 40) that linux became so important for me to learn but I believe that everything happens for a reason. May not always know WHY things happen, but I normally go with the flow and ride it out to see where it takes me next.

All the best everyone.
