Greetings all Linux and Unix and others users!


Hello.
I use Linux since 2003. My first distro was Mandriva, but I quickly changed it to Fedora. After using those distros I've started to hate RPMs
I used Ubuntu for a while, and then tried Gentoo, but it was too easy to use and too well documented I installed Debian as a distribution that shows the great idea of non-commercial software.

I come from Poland "a strange country, where you can speak in english with the waiter, in french with the kitchen chef, in german with the salesman but when you want to speak with the minister or any other civil servant you need a translator."
This poor country somehow has too much money too use this M$ rubbish everywhere... When I won with some friends some Novell software, a funny guy in our school figured out to exchange it for Win XP.
Sad isn't it ?

I hope someday... I will move somewhere far across the ocean.. out of this shit...

Welcome aboard.

rpms aren't bad. Much easier to deal with if you use yum though. yum will find all the dependencies and install them thereby getting rid of the biggest problem with installing rpms individually.

I thought with EU membership it allowed you to move to other countries in the EU to ply your trade. Odd - I used to work for a company that was trying to get employees to move to Poland in its international division due to a lack of IT professionals there.

However the M$ issue is everywhere. They had an 11 year head start on Linux and UNIX wasn't originally offered on PCs and when it was initially it was fairly expensive (as were the PCs themselves) at a time M$ was practically giving its software away.

By the way in the U.S. there are a fair amount of Polish Americans. One city I know that seemed to have a lot was Wheeling WV. I think that whole area (Pittsburgh PA is about 50 miles from there) had about the same concentration.

Smile Greetings all Linux , Unix and other Users

Hi Avallach, Your letter is my first venture into forums. I uses Mandrake 10.1 and my husband uses nothing else. I am fairly new to computers but now know a lot more than some of my friends, so I generally end up fixing their windows muckups. As for the state of ones surroundings - you can't get away from it by going somewhere else in the world. (Global warming is here too - New Zealand). Those who care only for themselves are absolutely everywhere. The answer is to show them a more compassionate way to live and your "It". From what you say in your letter I think you could be a leading light in your society. There is an old song titled "everybody wants to go to heaven but nobody wants to die" which translated means that everybody wants things to be better, but nobody is doing anything about making them better". We are all wingers. Being a linux man, people will come to you for advice, give them good advice. Cheers RubyW.
