This is my first merry go round with Linux. My name is John. I build my own computers, this desktop included.
I strayed away from Mac OSX when they refused to sell me the latest release. They stopped providing security updates for Snow Leo, I don't do windows, so I always heard good thing about linux.
I have no schooling on any of this. Anything I know about computers I learned from the internet and my friend google. Including how to build them.
I do admit that gadgetry of all sorts has my attention if that makes me a geek so be it. .
Although I'm having sort of a tough time learning the linux way of doing things, I'm not giving up and will continue to struggle through till I get it right.
