Thanks to Michael for providing a great segue into my introduction here.
Hi, my name is Karin, and I am a Linux addict.
I wasn’t always this way. I used Macs for a while, and switched to Windows because computers that came with Windows were cheaper. I started using Linux because I had a spare computer but no spare Windows license- I’d heard about this free operating system and I figured “what the heck, I’ll give it a try.”
Now, I’m glad I did. There’s been a learning curve, but the learning has been worth it.
My posts here will try to focus on beginning Linux ideas and solutions – but please feel free to call me out if I get too technical. I still feel that I am just learning this stuff, but after two years I feel a tenuous mastery over Linux.
If you want to check out my distribution (flavor of Linux) of choice, Ubuntu, you can do so here: www.ubuntu.com. You can even request that a free copy of Ubuntu be sent to you in the mail by going here: shipit.ubuntu.com.
