People who know me personally will know I'm a Linux fiend
and a geek in almost every respect...I mean, I just got incredibly over excited over my recent (as in last hour) purchase of a scroll mouse. Yes, a scroll mouse
, though I attribute the overexcitement to my general hyperactivity and my consumption of a bottle of Qibla Cola
. But life before Linux...brr...
I was interested in getting hold of Linux about a year or two before I actually got it installed...I picked up a Corel Linux
disc from the front of a computer magazine, then promptly lost it. Clever. Around this time, I was an MS junkie, with every single Microsoft
/MSN doodad around. I asked for a copy of Windows ME
for Christmas because it was "better". Yes, I'm paralytic with laughter as well. But then I saw the LIGHT...
I downloaded Corel, and installed it upon a PC I had given to my brother. Then I saw it and, well...
I took it back.
Since then, I've experimented with Lycoris
Desktop/LX (gorgeous, but no devel tools or files...it's hell), Mandrake
8.0 (A nice desktop but it pissed me off too much in the end) and eventually Red Hat
=yuck, and they fucked up KDE something bad-I compile my own now, it's worth the pain). I invented a packaging system, Spiff
and finally realised...
Who the fuck really needs Windows when you have all this?
So there you have it...my transition from Bill groupie
to, uh, Linus groupie
. Lesser of two evils? Probably.
