Smile Good morning, west coast. Penguins steady, I'm ready -- for introduction, of course.


Hello everyone, again.

I'm not actually a newcomer, but as I don't remember I had ever introduced myself, I thought it's about time to do so now, as I just switched my "main" distribution again -- for the fun of it, and because I like learning new.

My "history" with Linux is not actually a long one, but it isn't a short one either. I started getting to know this penguin stuff, which thereafter became my First Choice, back when the kernel version was about to start turning 2..or at least that's when I started really installing stuff and experimenting. So that's about it..oh, and before these penguins I really did have time to get familiar with MS, starting from the good 'ol DOSes, moving on to the Windows 3.x, towards Win95 which really seemed like a cool thing back then and so on. Macs were introduced to me later than Linux, so I wasn't so impressed about them anymore.

Now that I've changed distribution I'm hoping to get to know it well and be able to help both newbies and not-so-newbies, and get help myself when I (think I) need it.

Oh, two more things:

1) I've never used a BSD system myself, only GNU/Linuxes.
2) Unlike most of you, probably, I've been introduced to the world of Linux by a girl..so you can just cut the crap that girls wouldn't like or know how to use one

So..have a nice day, as do I, ask questions and keep answering to those you can. Thanks for listening (heh, I know you skipped the dull parts..) and...well, period.

EDIT: arr there was a mistake -- of course I've used Solaris too..

Welcome to LQ from someone who got here after you. Of course, I have traveled through the Bermuda Triangle several times, so maybe I really did get here first.
