I feel like I need to clarify a few things so I don't start coming across as some snooty open-source, anti-windows kinda-guy. Don't get me wrong, from now on I will probably always suggest Linux and open source to anyone who comes to me with a computer question, but I still recognize that Windows and Apple and any other proprietary type of Operating System is useful in many cases. I can't speak for the reliability of the Apple products, hardware or software, because it's always been a little out...

Moving on part II

Posted 03-02-2019 at 06:46 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

... and so one day I finally decided that I would just rid myself of any other operating system than Linux on my laptop. I had to have a backup plan though so I downloaded an iso of Windows 10 and copied that onto my external backup. If anything ever happened I could always return lol.

I had made the decision to make the leap, but what would I put on my laptop now that I was fully committed to Linux? I searched and read about dozens, probably hundreds of different Linux distributions,...

Continuing on with my early trials in figuring out where I wanted to go with computers, Linux had piqued my interest enough to the point I was strongly considering making the jump. But I had to be sure! I turned to the one thing I knew I could sacrifice without really giving a shit if I bricked it. “Bricking”, for those how are reading this and may not know, is a term given to things that are rendered useless through means of tinkering and attempts at repairing. And so I started to look around...

My intention isn't to get mass followers or anything like that, but instead, have a place to keep all of my thoughts and goals and activities related to Linux and my journey in learning.

I have never been this excited about learning anything in my life. I don't say that because I think I am unique in that fact, but as...

A little background on myself, and thoughts to a new 'blog-column'

Posted 03-23-2016 at 10:13 AM by goumba

Hey guys,

So, a little about me. Until a few years back, I was a big computer nerd. I still use Linux exclusively, but I used to spend every spare waking hour (that I wasn't working my day job which was typically 12-16 hours a day) just killing time. I know UNIX and Linux, but never really delved too deep.

Enter the big D word, which I blamed on my time wasting in front a computer. Where did my life go? I hit 35 years old, and 'd' set in big time. Not where I wanted...
