Thumbs up Celebrating one year with linux

It was around one year ago when I first installed my very first distro, Red Hat 9. I got the two CDs with a book that I bought, and it was love on first install.

In this one year, I've learnt so much about computers as a whole, heck I even ditched my computer maintainer. I can do everything myself now

Linux is like God compared to the "other" operating system that I use. Linux is a very powerful OS. Unfortunately, with great power comes great responsibility. But I'm learning.

Sooner or later, I'll be getting another machine for myself, and that's surely going to be a pure linux box. Linux just plain rocks man!!

I came across linux when mandrake 6 came out. But i only recently started understanding what i was doing (understanding from a newb's point of view), and I gotta agree with ya, Linux is the shiznite.

Never looked back.
