Arrow DOS, OS/2, Linux - still Smiley

Hi Folks!

I launched 2008 with a promise to myself to get extracted from the sweet pink goo of WinDoze for real this time. It has not been an easy road, but it also hasn't been nearly as difficult as the previous roads I've tried.

I put a link to my blog entry in here and the server said I was unworthy. So I'll give you some hints where to find it:
The pluses(+) above are *really* slashes. {big grin}

Leaving my beloved Warp4 behind was exquisite torment, but I'm not confident that eCs is going to be able to stay ahead of the curve and when IBM dropped support at the end of '06 I was pretty convinced I'd have to finally move on. So far, Kubuntu has made me a comfortable home, and with VNC hedging my bets on the WinDoze apps, I've made good progress.

On the server side I'm pretty settled in to using ArchLinux, though I'm only about 22% up that learning curve as opposed to well over 50% on the Kubuntu desktop side. Networking is being problematical because I'm still trying to mix Win2Kpro, LanMgr (WarpServer for eBusiness), and *Nix while keeping existing functionality alive for myself and my wife to actually get work done in the interrim. Not as much laboratory resources as I've had in the past and not nearly as much time as I'd like.

I'm here to search for answers and possibly encourage others as time permits. You can also find me at YahooGroup's OS2-Linux and UbuntuLinux.

See Ya!
