Yeah its a newbie thread, so I'll give you all a chance to point and say newbie or whatever, but just to give you some background I've been with computers since the Vic20, and I have an ole TRS-80 setting in my closet so I'm not that much of a newbie.
Anyways, I'm relatively new to linux I've been running it off and on for a few years and I've finally decided to take the plunge into the Linux community, and I'm gaining ground. I've become familiar with installing various packages, and my latest triumph was getting DVD's and Divx to play in Xine.:
Anyways enough rambling, and I look forward to learning more about Linux in the future.
Distros I've ran: Mdk, Suse, and Redhat.
/Edit: Doh, I made my first newbie mistake didn't see the Newbie thread up at the top, my bad. I guess staring at the screen for 16hours straight tends to get to you afterwhile.
