My Linux journey

Posted 12-01-2010 at 03:31 PM by druonysus

My story starts in 2003 when I was taking an A+ certification training course my high school offered. One day a friend of mine/classmate brought in several CDs and said they had an operating system called Linux on them. I had never heard of Linux before this and so he did his best to explained though he didn't know much more than I did about it. The CDs collectively made up the installation disks for Mandrake.

I Love...Adobe?

Posted 10-19-2010 at 03:31 PM by beetleman64 (Sensible World of Linux)

That's right. A company who many in the Linux world consider fashionable to hate, is one which commands respect from me. Why? Well the reason is that Adobe actually gives a damn. I know, I know, Flash is a bit of a horror show at times, but the fact that it is available on all major operating systems (even OpenSolaris for those poor fans who are left).
