    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Greetings, all,

    I've been using Linux off and on for about 9 or 10 years, but kept shying away from it when I ran into too many problems. Now I'm learning more about the CLI and want to understand how to solve problems myself. My goal is to use Linux for 90% of my computing needs within one year.

    Started with Suse years ago, played around with different distros, am currently using Puppy Linux and Ubuntu.

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hello everyone,

    Pleas allow me to introduce myself. My first name is Frans, my Nick is Ballie (pronounced: Ballee) which is a short version of my surname.

    You can find me in The Neterlands, where I'm lucky to be married to my wife (at least, that what she allways says, I tend to disagree ) spending most of my private life, doing whatever she tells me to do

    And spending most of my professional life at a ready-mix plant, where I'm busy being a jack of most trades. Meaning that I mainly drive a ready-mix truck (whith a max. load capacity of 13.5 cubic metres and a max total weight of 50 metric tons), besides that I'm a licensed lab-tachnician, so I regularly replace our concrete technologist in his absence. Besides that I frequently step in as a process operator/planner whenever the regular operator is otherwise occupied.

    I already looked at (K)Ubuntu a couple of times in the past decade, but never really got the hang of it, so I reverted back to Widoze. Mainly as a necessaty, because that was familiar territory. And I couldn't get things in linux to work the way it should.

    However, linux kept pulling at my jacket, trying to catch my attention, so a couple of weeks ago I tried again. This time with Kubuntu 12.10 inside a Virtualbox installation. This way I can allways switcht back and forth if needed. But I find myself using linux most of the time. So I think there will be a switch someday soon. Especially now the day is getting nearer that my current pc's life will end and it 'll have to be replaced by a new one. Forcing me to use that dragon they call Windows 8, from a company where they think that they have to do the thinking for me. Sorry for them, but I'd like to decide how my machine is run myself.

    I love the terminal way of life. Meaning, that I like the way I can get things done using the terminal. Also I'm rediscovering aliases. I used to use those a lot in the pre-wndows era. Using M$-Dos 3.something and 4DOS, I had a lot of those handy commands lying around. So it was very nice to see that those are supported in linux as well.

    Currently I'm quite happy the way it´ s running now, so I think I'll keep it the way it is for now...

    @ Ballie and DocMarlor: Welcome to the community and enjoy! There are a lot of helpful (and friendly) and knowledgable folk here. Just use a descriptive title on your new threads with any issues and remember to mark threads solved when they are. Both of these things will help others.

    Good luck.

    14-year old Xubuntu Quetzal user here.

    I've been using Linux for about 3 weeks now. Previously used OS X, so I'm familiar with all of the standard *nix commands (ls, chmod, cd, chown, rm, sudo, etc.).

    I admit, I am not your bog-standard 14-year-old. I am an undeniable geek. I have accumulated more electronic gadgetry than perhaps any other teenager on the planet. I own two desktop computers (custom built), a Thinkpad, an Ideapad, an Acer Chromebook, a Kindle, a Kindle Fire, a Nexus 4, an iPod classic, and two external hard drives (and before you ask, I paid for everything myself). I know how to program in QBASIC, and I shell script quite often.

    A few things about me: Oddly, my favorite genre of music is jazz (geeks are supposed to be unique, right?). I love to read. Whatever it is, if it's interesting, I'll read it. From classic literary works to programming textbooks, I love to read. I also love to write. I also have an odd quirk -- I'll be restless if I cannot figure out how something works. How does a car's engine stay balanced? How do aircraft lift off of the ground? How do telephones transmit voice over analog wires? I have a strong desire to figure out how things work, an unfortunate childhood curiosity that never seems to have left me, I'm afraid.

    Anyway, I hope my time at the forums will be great. Looking forward to getting to know some fellow GNU/Linux users!
