My Linux CV Part 3, I hear about it

Posted 12-04-2005 at 07:25 AM by stabu

I really wasn't so unhappy with Windows in the early days. This was mainly due to the fairly normal worktasks I had to do. Because of that, I really wasn't interested in exploring much behind the scenes. The watershed year was 1994/5. Three things happened.
