Hello from Down Under

Post by greywolf » Fri Aug 03, 2018 10:54 pm

Aussie old dog here to learn new tricks!! :)

Been in this IT/Linux game for over 20 years. Retired now, but I still keep the mind active by converting and supporting older folk, who have limited budgets and needs, over from "the Dark Side". I have about 200 folk I support on a number of different distros (from Debian Stable MX to full rolling Arch), but only those I am proficient with. I've used Manjaro for some time but was looking for a more "real" Arch based option to add to the mix & found myself here. I really like the way you approach things and how simple it is to get started.

Just tinkering with the Xfce at the moment, because I know it so well, but I can see myself getting back to Openbox or a tiling WM before long. Being an old CLI junkie from way back. :)

Glad to be here, see you round the place no doubt.

Welcome greywolf :D

You are doing the same things I do : enjoying Linux everyday and spreading the word ;)
I have installed Manjaro too, but found that Arcolinux is more reliable.

It is a nice feeling to give something back isn't it.

I was running the payroll for a company with hundreds of employees on a Linux (Minux actually I think) 386 PC back in 1988!!

Started personal computing with PCLinuxOS back in the early 90's. I've tried all the mainstream ( & quite a few weird) distros over the years. Haven't had Windows on a machine for over a decade. I build all my own Destop machines from scratch but I do buy Laptops etc off the shelf.

With the support, seeing the look on peoples faces when they realise they are in control of their computing experience is priceless! :) I think I have cured arthritis in the elderly by getting them to use their hands more on the keyboard using CLI terminals in Linux?! :)

I have only been using this distro for a matter of days but gee it is nice! So well put together, totally rock solid yet flexible. Pretty sure I will be around here for a while. Well done to the devs!

Anyway, thanks for the welcome; back to the fun!
Cheers,
greywolf.
