The other day I was trying to remember which was my first personal computer. Maybe it was the Commodore VIC-20, which I believe was the first consumer-oriented *color* computer. After that was the Tandy 1000. Then it was a string of IBM “clones” running various releases of Microsoft Windows. I think I discovered Linux in 2004 when a friend lent me a live CD with Knoppix on it. I booted into it and was hooked.
Recently I have started with Mint, version 12. By creating this journal / blog I can accomplish two goals: Share my insights and learnings with others who may benefit from this information, and learn how to create a nice blog. All constructive feedback welcomed.
