An old man from Norway saying hello.
Hi guys and gals!

I'm Bob, born in the late 60's, in Norway.

I've been fiddling around with Linux since mid 80's. Started with Slackware, went through Redhat and even BSD, but ended up with Slackware every time I tried to switch.

I'm kind of a "console guy", started playing with computers in the pre-Windows era. At that time we were using DOS and I got impressed by 4DOS from JP Software. I read somewhere that 4DOS was inspired from Unix and that kicked me towards Linux.

I was born in the mid '40's and I'm only in late middle age. :D

Ok, guess I'm not that old. :-)

Anyway, there's a lot of really young kids around so I guess I'm pretty old compared to them. The "dynamic" in the term young is obviously quite wide, while the term old is equally narrow.

I have a 10 years old daughter, and a 8 year old son. In less than 5 year they could be in this forum answering questions better than their father. An I was kind of grown-up when I got my first kid. Now, my daughter could have been 20 and a mother. Oh, that was not a pleasant thought, me being a grandfather. :-)

Thanks for making me feel welcome!

There is always one option left "Stay young at heart

It's not the years in your life, it's the life in your years that count!

So grown-ups do use Linux
I've been reading political science journals bashing Linux and free software all day today, and one thing they've all had in common is that they've said that the only demographic Linux and the like appeal to are young college students and teenage hackers.

I hate stereotypes. T_T

Here's a random welcome from a recent convert to Linux fresh out of high school. :)
