Comment My road to Linux (Score 1) 136

I fell in love with Unix in my college computer lab in the mid-90s. I really wanted to be able to have a similar system at home. Some of the guys there were using Linux to run a BBS, which evolved into the first ISP in our area. I got Slackware floppies and assistance from them and soon enough I was running Linux too! It's been my more-or-less full-time desktop (and everything else) OS since that time.

I used Drudge as the example because he was the first to publicly cry "foul" at Feinstein. I don't read Drudge and I'm not a member of any political party, Republican or otherwise.

Obviously you have no argument against what I posted, or else you'd reply with something other than an ad hominem attack.

Come on! You know it was fun! I'm just glad that my friend and I were doing the same process at the same time, just slightly out of sync so that neither of our machines was broken in quite the same way at the same time so we could use each other's box to get to the files we needed to fix ours. It all worked in the end and was amazing training for Gentoo later on.
