I sorta condense my quotes.

I started with Electronics and Computers back in 1980's. Back then we built; Clones, if anyone familiar with the term.
Being a Linux user in Arkansas has been a challenge, most people are still learning winders and that where I still work mostly. I have been nurturing some people into Linux, by showing them how that $5 desktop in a yard sale can at least get them on the Internet and maybe an IM or how adding $100 to it make it a top of the line computer. So, Linux gaining more interests as people see what been holding them back is winders. True, for gamers, the hook was set, but, wine seem to be setting some back into catch and release program.
More people are finding other capabilities to computers besides games and this seems a good time for Linux. Open source from Music to Education are the cornucopia of Linux users. More people are working from their homes, and again, Linux can provide an easy way into this new workforce. No longer should a person say they can not afford the computer, when people are giving them away, like VCRs, and Linux can make the freebie very capable of doing the job! So, this where I am at in convincing people Linux is not just for programmers, it for people wanting to pursue, education, work, community and the list goes on.
Sports in Arkansas has always been interesting, any State that can make gambling illegal for decades and yet have a Horse and Dog track where people make bets, has to be sports oriented, we love to play the game and I hope we still love them Hogs. Wooooo! Pig! Soooie! Arkansas Razorbacks!
I forgot to add, not sure of a project, but, it sound like fun, I did download the 11.04 and I may have an HDD to put in my Dell D610, I guess it have the requirements to run the Natty Narwhal, but, not sure I can make any commitment for the release Whamba Jamba!
