    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I was thinking something similar. I started a thread:Giving Thanks for Linux.
    I am very grateful for Linux and the great tools and interactive experience it provides. And it's free.

    A new Slackware users first impressions

    Until I read some of the other Linux experiences I thought some of my experiences were unique, but the glaring difference is my frustration with what seemingly is my diminished comprehension level at 76 years old. I came to Linux 1 year ago via Puppy loading to RAM simply because partitioning scared the you know what out me. Still avoiding partitioning I loaded Ubuntu as a windows file using wubi installer.
    Decided to bite the bullet and downloaded 8.04 ^ burned live CD. Using gparted I split my 40 GB HD in half with a 1GB swap and just let 8.04 load to unallocated and was off and running.
    When 8.10 was released I burned another live CD and repartitioned just for practice and had a multi boot 8.04 with kubuntu desktop, 8.10 justas gnome and my XP.
    Well about to take a serious plunge for me into just retaining 8.10 loading openSuSe 11 with extended and logical.
    To me in my small Texas town at 76 Linux is an adventure. Would love to chat with other Linux users. I am a retired Chef, in fact pretty well known in my small piece Texas.
    Oh yea I got bored in between and built a web site for town I live in
