My name is Donald and I have been using Linux as much as possible for the last couple of years, mainly to find a replacement OS for my wife's Linux netbook and to educate myself. I don't really need Linux, but I have spent many years avoiding Windows, since the early '80s, although I have Windows-based computers, too.

A blog, eh? The average blog here has about two posts, so we'll see how well I maintain this.

My most comfortable experience with Linux is based on Gnome and Xfce. KDE and I don't get along (although there are some interesting programs based on it, such as Krita), LXFE is a bit immature still, and plain interfaces, such as Fluxbox, don't really interest me. I have been using computers long enough and most of my computers are powerful enough that I prefer to use programs with a good GUI and it is the best thing to help Linux to grow, too.

Linux Mint is my most used distribution, but I install various distros onto USB sticks and experiment with a bunch of them. Less and less of the smaller distros get my time, though, because they just aren't worth it to me any more.
