anishakaul, JimBrewster, MTK358, mesiol, pixellany, cantab, linus72, hunternet93: They all ganged-up on my and made me feel welcome while I wallowed in a pool of my own ignorance. Due to their patient wisdom, I am now operating a Linux machine, learning more by the explorative minute and loving it. My success is this: I decided to be a Linux user, and due to the above individuals, I am a Linux user.
THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!
