    "How advanced are you?"

    Very advanced. I am human.2. You will all be upgraded or die.

    Apologies for thread hijacking, after seeing the thread title I couldn't resist.

    But on linux terms, I come in at semi pro. I could work with an arch system or similar if I wanted, I've done it before, but I really don't want to atm. I want to use my computer for the purposes it was invented.

    One little old lady, one Methodist preacher (not technically oriented) . . . we use Ubuntu. If the world only knew about it, they could use it. I have learned more about computers using Ubuntu, but were I totally uninterested in learning anything, and just wanted to use the system, Ubuntu would have done the job. More people need to know about it and the marvelous range of software that is available.

    Another Uber-PRO here then...
    Most of my day to day work not explicitly handling graphical data is done
    through some terminal program or other and I can write scripts and programs
    with confidence.

    However I am also a total newbie, because the skills I have aquired so far
    have also opened my eyes so that I can see the vast jungle of knowledge I
    have yet to attain. What I do know seems miniscule in that comparision.
    Don't peach linux. Melon it!

    I am going to have to agree with Simian on this one (wow who would have thought?). My qualification based on the poll is "Linus Torvalds Like". I am certainly not in the same ballpark as him. (Being honest). However I am running my own customized kernel and python applications.
