Post Hello, stumbling my way into Linux....


I've made noises about wanting to learn about Linux for years, but finally had to be forced into it when my laptop crashed with file system errors and a techie friend salvaged it by loading Ubuntu onto it. So, doing a google search for Adobe Photoshop equivalents for Linux led me here.

I've located a local Linux meetup group and will attend my first meeting with them next week. Hopefully, between them and this, I will get more comfortable and knowledgeable about this OS that necessity requires I now use.

Maybe I'll even be able to show my military IT son a thing or two, in time!

My sorry laptop with Ubuntu loaded has crashed with file system errors again. Can only run Ubuntu from disk and doesn't retain anything as nothing will actually save in the machine. I'm currently using my ancient Win2k machine to do most things, although there's a lot it can't do. Looks like the last post I made or tried to make got deleted; I can't find any trace of it. Doesn't matter now anyway.
