Think I'm in love...

hello world

I'm regularly a windows user but I stumbled across screenshots and discussions about debian and #! on deviantart and, like the visually driven consumer that I am, thought "Oh, hell. That is pretty, minimal, functional and awesome. I want that." So I fired up an old desktop, put XP to the torch and here I am to try this out. I've got to say that I'm a little bit daunted by the volume of customization, freedom and helpful people that I've encountered so far. This is a distant country from the OS that I'm used to.

I'll try to get confused and start asking questions ASAP.

Re: Think I'm in love...

I jumped from windows 2 years ago. Recently come to #!. 
I use #! waldorf on my main machine, everyday for my employment. And loving it. Good to have you here. This aint no drop, this is progress. Windows is completely archaic. Staring into the abyss mutates into a passion for becoming

Re: Think I'm in love...

Welcome - well... It's like toying around windows when younger I think. You make alot of mistakes *I do anyway* and learn from them - well, hopefully at least.
Some times linux still is overwhelming to me - and il think back on the good times I had on windows 2000! tongue
There are so much you can do with this - and people to help you on the way. Well, you also bump into some leet people that will just talk rubish to you - like another languish.
I really never knew how hard it would be to learn another system - and looking back growing up with windows, and not understanding why my mother had so much trouble learning it... *Come on mom that's so easy!..*
I have another angle to it now - trying a system *Gnulix* I did not learn from childhood. *Sorry mom*
I started trying on a small basis Ubuntu, then installed Mint - and now finaly found something il most problely stay with CrunchBang.
Injoy Gnulix - and welcome to the Terminal *He he he*

With love and gratitude -

Welcome to Club#!, emliquor!  I'd offer you a drink, but I see "liquor" in your username, so I doubt you'd like to get drunk.  (Douglas Adams reference wink)


I'm a moderator here.  How are we doing?  Feedback is encouraged.

Re: Think I'm in love...

Welcome to #! smile

Hehehe... first, look into Inkscape [http://www.flossmanuals.net/inkscape/], then install, from command line, sudo apt-get install inkscape
Quite a few of the community are on deviantart, and you just might share some ideas.
