Talking Introducing Thomas Sisson


My name is Thomas Sisson. I go by Tom and some places I'm known as MyLittleBronco. I've used computers longer than some of you have been alive. I used a small Texas Instruments computer to write my first Basic program. I've used several IBM or clone computers as terminals or home computers.

I started using Windows with version 3.11 after using an old MacIntosh. I have kept familiar with Windows and Apple OS. I first used Redhat Linux and maintained it with manual updates until Redhat Fedora was no longer useful as a personal operating system.

Today, I use Ubuntu, which is very user friendly and has just about every useful program available. It's only downfall is that it seems to try too much to be an operating system for the average user until something breaks. One cannot simply log in as root and run all of the backend tools to tweak the problem or hack the system.

That's when I come here to see what solutions have been useful for the problem I have, and to brush up on commands when I feel rusty.

Thumbs up Glad you are here!

Welcome to LQ Tom!

You may want to try another OS like Debian.

If you know RH, try Centos.
