Yay weblog.

So what shall I add for my first 'blog' entry?

Well, considering where this blog is located, I should say something about my linux experience.
I started off with Slackware about a year ago... I forget which version, it was fun, but I wanted to experiment with different distros (once I found out that there were other distros!) so I bought the 2005 Linux bible. It came packaged with Fedora Core 3 which I used for many months, however, it was fairly twitchy on my system, so I started looking around at other versions. I tried Ubuntu (Warty) for a little while, but I had difficulty with my sound card. I switched back to Fedora a little while after Core 4 came out, and back to Ubuntu after Breezy had been out for a while. I'm currently struggling trying to get networking to work on my Gentoo machine (It works fine on the live CD, but dies once I've installed and rebooted the minimal system (even if I use genkernel.)

If there weren't so many distro choices, I probably would be fairly profficient with GNU/linux by now -- having been forced to learn, rather than re-install a distro in which my problem is easily resolved.
