Greetings from British California

Post by Douglas Wardle » Sat Aug 17, 2019 3:02 am

Hi Folks,

I'm in the Vancouver, BC area. The British California is meant to elicit "Wut?" responses. I'm new to this forum but not completely new to Linux. I've installed many of the distros but have settled on Linux Mint as my preference.

I'm a project manager for enterprise system implementation, mostly involving SAP, IBM Maximo, and a few others. Organizational change is a big factor in such initiatives, so I'm somewhat of a bridge between technology and business.

A primary goal is to avoid the creeping move towards subscription-based software. The future looks expensive, so I need to get ahead of that now.

I look forward to discovering more about using Linux.

Sort of makes one wonder whether or not you guys will also be building a wall to keep out the riff-raff from across your south border....

Didn't work. This is an international forum, not a US American one. :wink:
Welcome aboard!
