Hi folks, I'm a retired Nuclear Power Plant worker and worked at over 30 US nuclear plants as a contractor for over 25 years.
During that time I participated in over 75 refueling outages doing maintenance (valve repair).

I'm an American and I live in Elko, Nevada USA.

I've been using linux since the early Ubuntu days (2005).
I have Mint 10 installed on a USB external drive.

My interests include firearms (mostly handguns) and computers.

welcome to the mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Welcome aboard!

As a nuclear worker, you will be familiar with dangerous and hidden knowledge and good process
--so you will not have been intimidated in any way by the Linux and Open Source mindset

Just as a matter of curiosity, did you see the windows OS invasion start in those facilities, before you retired
    If so, Darn
    Microsoft again
    --They already have taken out an Australian TV channel I liked Nine..
