I never knew Linux could be so much fun!

Hello everyone! I had been a Windows guy for a while now. I hated the blue screen of death, but once I switched over to XP everything went pretty smoothly. But after a dual boot attempt went wrong, I had to try and repair my XP installation. Instead of actually repairing, it made things worse. I ended up having to reinstall XP and start from scratch. I was pretty annoyed and I figured that if I had to start from scratch anyway, I would just take this opportunity to learn Linux. I haven't looked back yet. It has been so much fun (and I don't care if that makes me a geek ). Sure it has been frustrating at times, but I think I have learned more about my computer in a month than with years of using Windows. I haven't posted any problems here yet, but that is only because all of my troubles so far have been quickly fixed by searching these forums and the occasional search on google. I am very glad that I found these forums.

Wait till one of your friends on window's asks for help with a hardware problem and you ask for his/her's /etc/fstab file and they look at you like your a fscking martian.
