Intro Post - Greetings All
My name is Jim. I'm an IT professional W/30 years of experience on a variety
of platforms and environments. I delved into Linux about two years ago after
developing BASH skills under MinGW. Professionally, I work primarily with
Fortran and MinGW/BASH.
So far I've installed Ubintu and Mint on a few machines and prefer the Debian
flavor of Linux because of its commitment to open source development. I've
gained a fair comfort level with GNU/Grub and My current course of study is
LFS (Linux From Scratch) with BLFS to follow. I'm one of those people who
thrive on learning all the esoteric details.
