Greetings to all you penguin aficionados


I'm a long time Linux user that finally got around to joining LQ.

I'll do my best to ask questions in a reasonable manner and, when possible, I'll answer others' questions.

FYI: I've been using Slackware as my primary desktop OS since 2003. Wow, almost 15 years! (I didn't realize that.)[OK, I can't subtract] I love Slackware so much, I even run it on my Macs, thanks to rEFIt. (BTW, Slackware64 runs beautifully on the aluminum MacBooks! More on that in an upcoming blog.)

Anyway, feel free to give me a shout or read my shiny new blog.

Happiness is a computer that actually works!
Stu...

No, me neither. But then again who realised it really is 2018?..

Hey
Welcome to LQ.
BTW what do you mean, "almost 15 years!", you only told us about Slackware since 2003... so, if you like, tell us about your Linux experiences, I think this is the best place for that :3

Hey stureedy,
You use any other distro's?
Is Linux your job or hobby?

Welcome to LQ!
