Linu, Windows and Myself

Posted 04-30-2009 at 09:40 PM by jupiter00

This is my first Blog at all and so, be patient.

I became a Linux User circa 2002 and from those days I going from Windows to Linux back and forward, I had used mainly Red Hat (from RH 5 to Core 7) but the difference this time is that I decided to make the leap to Linux for almost all my every day computing (professional and personally speaking).

Linux Magazine

Posted 04-30-2009 at 05:47 PM by uinseann

Gaining a legislative majority

Posted 04-30-2009 at 01:12 PM by Dubious Dave
