Hello from London/Amsterdam/Yogya :-)

Post by Sietske » Mon Feb 19, 2018 6:16 am

Hello everyone!

I'm Sietske and I just moved back to using Linux after being stuck with windows for a couple of years. In contrary to most people who use Linux, I wasn't introduced to Linux because I was tech-savvy back then, but because I managed to drive my friends and lecturers to tears with my ability to make Windows computers crash multiple times a week, who then decided to install Linux on my laptop as a final resort. Luckily Linux works perfect for me, but then again if I have to install something new I'll probably have to ask around here. And if I do, please talk sllooooowwwwwllyyyy :-)
