Yeah, well, how else do you introduce yourself?
I'm new here, not a newbie though, I've been in linux for four years or so (ditched windows (mkfs -t ext4 /dev/sda1) after trying out linux for 2 mounths.)
How I found this place? No idea. I search the web by using a search engine then hand searching all the sites that the sites that contain something useful link to.
Is there some way to make this text bigger? This is the fist time I've run into a forum with ultra tiny text (I could use kmag but that would be too easy.)
What am I doing here? Well I'm hopefully going to take on the worlds greatest challenge, like so many other mortals have, and maybe I'll succeed. What is this great quest you say? Well Linux needs a manual of some kind and many people have tried to write one but I have yet to read an up-to-date non-over-simplified concise manual (though I've not read through the one here yet.)
What brings me to the conclusion that the current ones are insufficient you say? First off, they tend to assume that you want to know everything about the particular topic they are writing on right now whereas you only want to know how to set up your computers X not how X works from scratch. Second, many people who go to use Linux fail to comprehend how to do anything because they are so used to windowz where there is exactly one way to do X, X makes no sense how it is done, and if you deviate in the slightest way from the exacting way you must do X your computer blows up. Third, and finally, The more I read and learn about Linux the more reasons I find for loving Linux, so, it follows that since many people are not using Linux that there must be an information gap.
I will not be able to talk very often because I don't have intranet in my house.
Talk to you later.
