Hello alexsolus, welcome to LQ.

LQ has more than a few old souls and they seem to get along well.

Thumbs up OMG!!! Welcome.

Welcome!!! Genuine Empathy & Friendship to you.

I'm old Old OLD, & that's perfectly ok.
There's lots of things in Life that each person is newbie & clueless about, and that's perfectly ok.

I liked your other Thread, discovering old RH7.3
Putting that in M$Win language,
Oh My Gosh (OMG), Oh NO, a Win98 production server!, & that's (im)perfectly ok.
Gentle patience (& dilligent creativity) time.

It reminds me people thinking: 'OMG' when they hear: I like running a 7mb Linux ( )
in on WinXP sp2. OhMyGosh! And, for me anyway, that's perfectly ok.

Best wishes. Think positive. (& no need to feel negative about any OMGs)

P.S. a minor possible suggestion on the other Thread:
you can use Edit *then 'Go Advanced' button* on the title, to take out the ..EL, which refers to the current commercial licensed Enterprise product. (Make a note in your reply in that thread, that you've done that edit, to clarify history.)

I wasn't old when I started using Linux, but I am now.

Actually, I don't feel all that old, but everyone around me looks younger every day.
