A new hello from the old me

Oh my does the time fly!

Years back I started working with Linux-based devices. Needed Win for the office apps tho', so started with Cygwin, but after a while it just wouldn't cut it anymore. Recovered an old, beat-up desktop PC, and after a bit of searching and distro-hopping landed on #!.

Fell in love immediately. Darn easy to install, made the old junkpile fly and suited my philosophy admirably: OS should manage the communication between me and the system HW, otherwise stay the heck outta way.

That wasn't the only reason - there was this amazing community. HOAS, damo, ohnonot and the rest of the old CrunchBunch, I can't even express how many pinches your advice has saved me from. Honestly - I'd be breaking about half a dozen serious ND/confidentiality agreements big_smile

Glad to be back! cool

Nice to see you again smile  There may be someone else in your usual chair in the Lounge now!
