I love linux


Hi everyone,

I started using linux the year before last, and it opened a whole new world for me! I was always frustrated with using the mouse and using windows, and now I have a new freedom at the command line, and with scripts. Now emacs keybindings are burned into my finger tips that I can no longer use firefox and have moved onto conkeror and browsing the internet in emacs.

I am also in the process of turning my family to linux

hehe, I can't understand how vi works? It's baffling to me, it seems like there is even more dark arts and black magic there than with making linux work
