The printable version of the page, wouldn't that be the better choice to store?

Hello jeremy, thanks for this forum! I am a totally new to Linux, but I signed up to see what I could learn from my "elders"
Today I'm on to search the forums for anybody that has booted Linux from a usb (to see if they were as chicken as me at first and to see if they have any tips)
I like to learn from OPM (other people's mistakes), it keeps me from making too many of my own - I hope
Thank you again!

I started LinuxQuestions.org as a way to give something back to the Linux community. I had been using Linux for a while at that point and wanted to offer help to existing and potential Linux users. In the 14 years since then, LQ has grown far beyond what I ever imagined it would.

LinuxQuestions.org Turns Fourteen

Better late than never?

First of all, I would like to congratulate Jeremy and his crew, for his/their achievement/s. Wonderful!

BTW - my 2nd-last desktop wallpaper with Windows 7 featured a bemused Tux sitting behind a broken window, reflecting that Windows is busted.

I burnt my bridges some weeks ago, nuking Windows in favour of a totally Linux environment (Trusty Tahr), and have not looked back!

However you asked for feedback:

"Introduction to Linux - A hands-on guide". I can get no further in the process without revealing my phone number, and I don't do that. I realise it may be a valued sponsor to your site, so I am not complaining. I will use the expertise of site members to answer my questions.

Good luck, and best wishes with the next 14 years!

As this is a third party offer, it's not something we have any control over. I realize some members may not be comfortable giving out personal information, however, and although it means we lose out on the sponsorship portion, the PDF is available elsewhere using a quick search (http://tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/intro-linux.pdf).

Motivated and helpful

Thank you Jeremy for establishing this forum and helping to make it possible for people like me to set up a networked home media server/clients DIY on a very low budget using castoff and home-built machines while learning more about the hardware and software involved.

I received cheerful advice here (bootinfo script) that helped me to troubleshoot a difficult GPT booting problem on old hardware. Canonical is distribution-specific yet the solution came from here not there. Maybe a distribution-independent forum is actually better.

I also learned that I can upgrade the graphics adapters in the clients to get the latest HD codecs in hardware rather than buying higher-powered machines capable of software decoding (I was previously unaware that the latest hardware codecs are now supported in Linux). So I also got help with hardware selection on a completely different topic at the same time.

All around Linux is the best solution for me and linuxquestions is part of the reason why. Thanks again Jeremy! <3 XOXO

If it wasn't for LQ, I would never have discovered the awesomeness of Slackware and the community around it.
That's the single best reason for me to stick to LQ if anything else.

Congratulations Jeremy-the root and all the mods, members and aliens. May the force be with you!

Regards.
