Cool A "Hello world"

I'm a returning Linux fan. I've used a few distros in the past, Vector, Fedora, and OpenSuse KDE, as well as a few others that I just cant think of right now. At that time I chose OpenSuse 11.4 with KDE for about 8 months. I got a bit frustrated that it couldn't run the game I used to play and ended up buying Windows 7 Pro 64 OEM so that I could run EvE Online again. All the time missing LInux. I just didnt have the time to fuss with it and I've learned a bit since then. Now I'm back, this time I've chosen to use LinuxMint with the Cinnamon desktop, thanks to being able to try out differnet live distros through YUMI and a USB drive. I installed Mint dual booting with XP on my laptop. I'm having a ball again with it and It's a bit easier to along with at this time for me. I hope one day to delve deeper into Linux and try using Arch. I believe I have some learning to do before I do that though. Another of the major reasons I'm back with Linux is that I'm currently a CCNA student and the Cisco OS is based on Unix as Linux is. I thought that playing with the Linux command line might help out. And Like I said, I just plain missed Linux. The education it was giving me really had me all grins MOST of the time. I'm glad to be back and who knows, the education I get on the side just running and playing with Linux might really help out with future employment. I know the City of Largo runs its systems on Linux. I.T. security is where I'm headed and everyone is always talking about how good Linux and OpenBSD is in that area so it's time I get off my toosh and learn it! lol (some more) . I'd also like to say that I REALLY missed the community there is in Linux. Every time I had something stump me, beyond what the forums and google could help me with, all I had to do was hop on IRC and ask. There was almost always someone there to help me out. Linux folks are awesome! Thanks to all those who keep it all alive for us dummies to learn and pass on! What great concepts, Linux and OpenSource! I'm in! Hopefully I can contribute. By the way, I'm from, and live in Florida, USA.
