Greetings from Argentina

Postby Junkie on Mon Jan 24, 2011 4:02 pm

Hello everybody, my name's Diego, I'm 28 and I live in Argentina.
I've been a Linux user for about 4 years now, the two first wavering between M$ and Linux, and the last two, just using Window$ for gaming.
I've just joined this community yesterday, since I've not been user of Linux Mint for too long (hanged out with Ubuntu for a while, since Ubuntu 6, and even tried out Mint a couple of times (being LM9 now my primary desktop OS) giving up to it 'cause never could get the wi-fi to work correctly in my laptop) but when I found out about LMDE , got very excited for the fact that i could use a pure-debian based system,with all the looks and goodies of Mint.
In fact, with Debian i had no problem with the wi-fi issue, so I thought that this would worth the shot...well, DAMN, IT DID!!! A proof of this, I'm on vacation right now, lying on the hotel bed, and I just bringed with me my faithful good ol' Dell D400 with a fresh install of LMDE, relying on it for the web check in, e-mail and photo storage. (And I've shooted more than 900 pictures with my camera)
I work in IT, for now in WinTel (that is M$ support, unfortunately, but hope that will change soon), yet I have 2 or 3 boxes with linux for fooling around and make some test drives with bacula, nagios, mantis,etc
Found this forum by googling the prhases of the MOTD of Husse, I was very curious about finding out who could say such funny and truthful things (got very sad when I readed about his departure of this world, since reading daily the MOTD in the console make me feel him like a friend... )
I'll try to put my two cents on this forum, since I believe on the worldwide linux community. I hope to be of any help I can.
One more thing, pardon my english, I've just noticed that I'm very used to reading it, but my writing is pretty rusty...
And sorry for the long post :)

cheers,


D

Oh, Argentina - the home of tango, right? :D Welcome in forum, amigo!
Linux/Unix is about freedom, Windows about slavery.
