Re: SO here I am trying to learn, and help others.
I couldn't agree more with QIII. One should always remember that those who provide assistance in the help sections of these forums are volunteers. They come from different walks of life and for some English may not even be there first language. But they still endeavor to provide support for nothing but a simple "Thank You".
One suggestion I'd like to make is: Try not to be so thin skinned. Your response to
zrdc28 in this thread was <in my humble opinion> unnecessary. I'm also disabled and was forced to leave a lucrative career in process engineering, due to said disability. Initially, it was tough and like you I'm forced to spend much of my time indoors. But over the past years I've enjoyed helping others (neighbors, friends, etc.) install & use Linux. I invested my entire first year of disability learning Linux (still am learning) and found it a great way to not only help others, but feel productive.
I chose to focus my energies primarily on friends and family, but you may find it more rewarding to spend time helping the masses - or do both. Like many things in life, I believe patience and tenacity always pay big dividends when it comes to learning anything new.
Good Luck. I wish you the best and hope you truly enjoy your Linux journey.
Just my $0.02
