The journey in Linuxville continues

Posted 07-06-2011 at 08:42 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...

The cure to your wireless woes. :)

As a VERY new Linux user, 10/22/2010 (First install, duel boot with Win XP and Mandriva 2010.0 KDE) I have become absolutely fascinated by the Open Source Operating System.
