Talking Hi...Totally new to Linux.

Howdy to all you folk at LQ.

My name is Jon Anderson. I'm from Perth in Western Australia.
Married to the same lady (Sally) for nearly 34 years.

I/we have absolutely NO idea what we are up against with Linux.
Been playing around with computers since around '88. Still don't know too much.

Just over 1 year ago we had 2 computers, just for basic stuff. Wife accounts, etc. Me online in car forums. Then we decided to build our own computer. Long story.

Started folding which became habitual. We now have 14 desktops and 2 notebooks, all folding for team #93 and working hard for a good cause.

In any posts i make i usually refer to the wife as "The Handbrake" (cause she slows me down, lol). So should you see this, it's a pet name. (she knows and laughs)

Anyhow, now you know what you are up against.
