Exclamation Hello Cruel World

Hi, this is just my introduction. I'm not a total noob to linux, as I have been using *nix occasionally for many years, and became a fan of Linux with the release of Mandrake Linux way back when. I can code a little bit in LPC, and at least know the basic syntax of C-based languages, but haven't actually coded anything useful except in LPC. I am familiar with the very basic unix commands.

I use Windows (or Microsoft products) only when I am absolutely forced to, and I have recently become frustrated and annoyed with Apple's actions since the atrocious "free" downgrade of 10.7 Lion and the disappointing $20 upgrade to ML. Apple devs also seem to be rewriting the *nix commands themselves, making them less useful, or just removing them or renaming them or whatever, which reminds me of how Microsoft operated from MS-DOS 4.0 onwards. I like all the free software that seems to be available on Linux this days, and also I want to avoid having to constantly scan my system for viruses/trojans/malware, which are now becoming a problem with Macintosh. I am more motivated than ever to shed the shackles of the masses.

Then install Linux, and forget about windows and mac(unless they are job related).
