Hello from a Linux newbie based in the UK
« on: July 07, 2014, 05:19:33 am »
Hi, my nick online for many years has been Jabar i say it as J Bar and no i am not related to Jabber the hut :). I have been using computers since 1980 when i got my first computer a ZX80 followed by ZX81,CBM64,CBM16,BBC Micro then i stuck with my CBM Amiga for many many years (the best machine i ever had) in fact i still have a A500 in the attic boxed as new along with a TI99/4A a oric 1 and many other classic computers.I have over the years used many OS's from CPM,QNX,AmigaOS,BEOS,BSD etc etc and still tinker when i get time,i also tinker with my Arduino and Raspberry PI.
I have been using Windows as my main OS since 1998 (job requires it) and gaming of course.I have had a Tux box for about 3 years nothing special i use it for network testing with Kali now and back track before that.i have installed most popular linux distro's where my limited knowledge would let me but often have to give up or loose my hair trying.That is why i am here to learn.

Jabar.

Welcome Jabaruk1

I still use foxpro2.6 dos on vector 7.0 (dosemu).  I've been going to update that for about 20 years. 

Too bad about the windows thing.
