'Ello there everyone.
I can't believe I forgot to do an Intro. Ok, so um. About me. I have been using computers since a child. I'm 38 years old now and work as an IT consultant in a small but rapidly growing company. I love my job. I hate being "in the field." I am sooooo done supporting clients. But a few more contracts, we hire a proper sales guy and I bounce out of the server room and back into Corporate Management where I really dig my teeth in.
I am a Thinkpad nut. Best laptops, bar none. I have accounts on Thinkpads.com and ArsTechnica to name a few. I have spent years in all the major OS's. Saw DOS go from 3.3 to 6.2.2. Ran all the versions of Windows, yes even NT 3.5.1. Been a Mac user since System 6. Owned a few Sparc Boxes, get a DEC Alpha still in storage (doubt it runs though). In my heart, I always preferred Linux. But the world decreed that Windows and MacOS shall rule and *NIX (Linux and UNIX) will handle the backend / be 3rd tier on the desktop side of things.
So...not new to Linux, new to these forums. Speaking of which, how did I hear about this place? Well you can't be any kind of a Linux user without having at least having heard about #!. But what actually drew me here was Conky. I have this habbit of crawling the net looking at people's .bashrc setups and conky configs. What made me stay? The community. I received *enormous* help in the Conky thread. So here I am.
A burnt out MS guy, wanting to get heck out of the server room. A long time Linux user looking for a home and sanctuary from everywhere else.
I'm also a big e-book fan. I appreciate all sorts of genre's. Along those lines I have been using Pandora, YouTube and Milk Music (On my Note4) to find some awesome new artists over the last few years. So that's been a lot of fun. Actually, it's more than something I enjoy. It's something I find myself becoming more passionate about. I love discovering new artists and bands. There's a TON of music exploding over the 'net and I think that is awesome.
Anyway, thanks for letting me say hi.

It's a pleasure to greet you during these exciting times.
Welcome to the forum.
I was waiting for a live .ISO to install from. I had heard that there was going to be one.
RE: WM's. That's what I like about Linux. Pick and choose your own pieces to make your set up fit you. Not some dev's idea of what should work for everyone.
Welcome to the community and the distro, Temetka. Wow, that's some kind of background. Your last paragraph was a bit confusing. You started off saying something about ebooks, but ended up talking about music. I love both by the way and ezines as well.
Anyway, I subscribe to Live365.com and I've discovered a number of new artists listening to the different channels. Probably my favorite music genres are rock, bluegrass, and new age or ambient. In general though, I love a variety of music genres.
