introduction


hello all.

I don't know much about linux but want to learn.

I keep getting a e-mail on this sight, so I must have joined it some time ago when I was in school learning the IT trade.

any way I am 65 yr old and getting a bit slower and forgetful.

I had some schooling on the version 7.2 readhat and have most of the differant versions on cd's, I have played with it a bit, but not enough to be comfortable with it as yet.
I am now building a new system to run it and should have it done by next month.

so I guess this is my first post here and hope to be the first of many.

excellent news Bob!

my dad is 77, and he's happy with the system i built him. i do all the maintenance, he's happy with Firefox as a web browser and Evolution as an email client, and i don't think he even knows the difference between the system he has and the window$ system my brother uses. he does understand cooperative community-based projects though, and he's very happy to be involved with one even only at a consumer level.

linuxquestions is great.
enjoy.

andrew
