Newbie intro

Post by solarmax » Sat Nov 18, 2017 2:43 pm

Hi there, I am completely new to Linux. Having resurrected an old HP 1660a that crashed irrecoverably with XP I have successfully installed Linux. I am looking forward to learning how to work with this system after having been introduced to it a free information meeting many years ago. Duck1 because I am bound to have many random questions
