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.

    I too started with a Commodore VIC-20 but kept with the Commodore theme and graduated to the C-64, C-120 and eventually to a couple of Amigas – the Amiga was a great machine and probably is still my favorite! This addiction to PCs led me down the path of sysadmin working on AT&T UNIX SysV at work which has eventually led me to various flavors of Linux, which of late has been Pinguy. Strange how things have evolved over the years…
