My Linux CV Part 5 (Final) I start to use it

Posted 12-04-2005 at 06:44 AM by stabu

So I have now been using linux for about three years, and recently moved to Slackware, which after trying many, seems to suit me. I am still very mediocre, and the learning has been very slow.

A key realisation I had was that you can practically do anything with Linux and related software, once you have the appropriately structured knowledge. That's both good and bad, and furthermore is a sure indicator of very time consuming activity. And that it is.

My Linux CV Part 4, I get it (installed)

Posted 12-04-2005 at 06:32 AM by stabu

My Linux CV Part 2, DOS

Posted 12-04-2005 at 06:14 AM by stabu

Finally I got my own computer, which is when finally I took a proper interest, and it ran MS DOS 3.3. I had got somw Windows diskettes but they really slowed the thing down. I have to say I was quite happy with the programs I had, mainly because my usage was pretty much office work and Lotus 1-2-3 and Wordperfect were definitely fast and easy to use. I don't think things have improved that much since then for office workers. We struggle to keep the same level of task-based productivity.
