Something, something .. Something.

Nice to meet you all!

I've been using bunsenlabs for quite many years but haven't really been engaged here in the forums and I decided it's time to change that. (I registered on the forum during 2018 and makes my first post now XD )

I started getting in to Linux in my later teens during which i circulated through pretty much all the more popular distros and a -huge- amount of the non-popular ones until I finally came back and landed on this distro as my daily driver completely replacing Windows which I only used for games, and I don't play much games anymore.

What led me to this decision?
Well, out of all the distrubutions I've tried, the ones that functioned properly for me was all Debian-based, so I decided to pick one built on Debian. Then out of all the available Debian-flavours only Bunsenlabs achieved my desired speed, (somewhat) easy to configure, and proper keyboard shortcuts for navigation!

This was a major sell-point for me because I suffer from RSI (repetitive strain injury) from being an overly active PC gamer during my teen years and being able to navigate through my laptop without having to use a mouse or touchpad too much is a really positive plus since this alleviates this and the pain I feel when using a computer mouse/touchpad nowadays.

A little info about me :
I recently turned 30 years old, I'm originally from Sweden but currently living in the Netherlands and working a full-time job as a Customer Support Representative while simultaneously getting my Bachelor degree in Development of e-Services.

I wish you all a great day and I'll see you around in the forums (^.^)

Hi NightOwl. Welcome.
I've heard there's some cookies in the break room that one should not go anywhere near.
So, forewarned! wink

Welcome NightOwl

Feel free to roam the halls of the lab, stop and talk to people.
The coffee and doughnuts are free, but as warned stay away from damos biscuits (cookies).

damo's a great guy when you don't touch his biscuits. smile
