Introducing The Immoralist

Hello all. I'm very new to the whole world of Linux, so be gentle with me.

I'm a web designer by day and DJ by night. I had a prehistoric laptop I wanted to revive so I added some RAM and installed #! and am delighted with how painless it all was. Also, as a web person I've been finding myself moving further away from just doing the pretty stuff and more drawn towards the nuts and bolts of PHP, mySQL and all the rest where having a 'nix system to develop on is a great advantage. I've now converted my main work machine to dual boot with windows 7 thanks to scraps of knowledge I've gleaned from these forums and am loving it (I'm not quite ready to make the full separation from Windows yet as I have tools I've been using for years and could not do without, and also I need to test design work on as many systems as possible).

For someone who has been used to gui's all the way I was initially scared of the terminal, but we are developing a good relationship now. It's a steep learning curve, but one I'm really enjoying.

I hope to be helpful to other people one day, and not be too annoying in asking what are probably really obvious questions.

Anyway, greetings from the merry old land of Aus.

Re: Introducing The Immoralist

Welcome to #! and forums Immoralist, good choice of distro you have made. Just take your time and suddenly one day you will notice that you have not logged into your Windows system for three months! Have fun & ask away if you are in doubt!

Time to move on!#

Welcome, Immoralist, and don't worry about asking questions -- this is probably the most informative forum staffed by the friendliest people you can find anywhere in Linux-land. Enjoy your stay with CrunchBang!

Re: Introducing The Immoralist

Hi Immoralist - I like playing with web pages too, though I'm not an expert at all - html, css, bit of php - but since shifting to Linux it's been so much fun here that my site has been sadly neglected. neutral

Anyway, welcome to CrunchBang, take a seat and make yourself at home! smile

Welcome to #! smile

Still got one Windows partition for the Microsoft-only stuff; Silverlight, used by Netflix - and no bloody one else!
Hoping somebody comes up with an HTML5 work-around soon... roll
