Hello: celebrating Linux together


Hello, everyone, and it's a pleasure to be here to share with
you my enthusiasm about GNU/Linux, to relish yours, and
hopefully to participate in process of asking and answering
questions that solves problems while building community.

For the past two years or so I've been using Slackware 10.0,
first ZipSlack to get started, and soon a full installation in a
Linux partition. For the previous eight years (1996-2004) I had
been using MS-DOS 6.22 plus DJGPP, a 32-bit DOS port of GNU
which naturally led me toward a text-based Linux environment
such as Slackware, as did also my experience with *NIX Internet
shell accounts.

I owe much to our diverse community which has made GNU/Linux
possible, and also to one Slackware/Gentoo-using friend who
gently pointed out to me in the earlier part of 2004 that if I
wanted to run a command-line OS, I might well as run one with
some modern amenities <grin>. Of course, I realize that for
others it's the GUI options that help make Linux outstanding,
one tribute to a flexible OS meeting many needs.

An especially exciting aspect of this for me, and an interest I
share with my friend who helped in this DOS-to-Linux migration,
is composing and recording music in various historical and other
tuning systems: we have both found ecasound a great application
for this, fitting in nicely with an assortment of music-related
and audio programs.

Finally, over the years I've learned how valuable good
documentation can be, whether found in a printed manual, a GNU
info file, or a thread posted on a forum like this. It's
wonderful to be a part of a community pursuing this high
tradition of education and mutual support.

Most appreciatively,

Margo Schulter

Hello Margo Schulter. Before when I was just using slackware, there was not much online connections and the only friends that I've had was the docs. Sometimes it's even much faster to learn offline as you try to solve your problems in your own way.

So I agree with you.

Welcome to LQ!
