Hi, I’m Karena from Olathe, Colorado, USA. I’m a former tech in an analytical chemistry lab, and a current painter. I’ve been using Linux for about 10 years, and following It’s FOSS for about 2. I love tech learning and tinkering, and I’m really looking forward to interacting with this seemingly terrific community of people!
welcome to the community, @Karena
Good Morning Karena
Always nice to have new peeps on here. Welcome to our friendly community, enjoy your time with us and ask and answer away, we are learning no matter what our experience is.
Thank you! Glad to be here.
Thank you! This looks like a terrific group of people.
My name is Terry, I’m from UK I have dexterity issues so am only able to use a PC. I have used Linux Suse since around 2006, then for the past few years Ubuntu. I’m currently using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS which appears to be not working as it ought. I previously had someone who assisted me with any problems but now I’m on my own so need to take the plunge and at the very least learn how to do command lines.
Good to have you here and a long time Linux user as well. Hope you enjoy your stay with our friend community. Sorry to hear you have dexterity issues. You could look at the Its Foss website for some help with the command lines & I am sure that @abhishek might have some guidance to help on that.
Welcome to the community, Terry.
We’ll surely try to guide you in solving your problem. With a little patience and a little persistence, I am sure you’ll be able to fix them.
My name is grosskloss and I live in the state of New Mexico,USA
I am retired and I repair computers as a hobby ( for friends and neighbors and also to give to people that can’t afford one)
Started playing with linux with Ubuntu 12.04
Dual boot Windows 8.1 pro and Linux Mint 19.1 ( I am one of the three people who actually like
I’ve been reading Abhishek’s ITS FOSS for about 2 years and I think it is the best forum I have been on and the only one I have joined
I am self taught ( DuckDuckGo is my friend) and will be happy to help with regard to repair or replacement of hardware. As I am self taught, please forgive the simple language I will use to explain something. I am ignorant of programing, software in general and IT stuff and my expectations are to learn about these things as it is time to start using Linux only.
I like Linux Mint a lot and am trying MXLINUX 18.3
Hi and welcome to the community. Might be prejudice about this, but I think it is the best as well. Feel free to ask and contribute as much as you want, or just read away on things that are of interest to you. Hope you enjoy your stay with us:grinning:
Welcome to the forum. And kudos for helping people by repairing their computers.
Welcome to the Its Foss @grosskloss. Like you, I’m new (less then 6 months) to IT’s Foss and Linux Mint. You picked a good board to join for these guys are great. So don’t be afraid if you have a question, ask away.
Thank you for the welcome, I’ve already learned so much from reading the questions and answers, and I’m sure I will enjoy a long stay.
Bonjour indeed Paul,
Sounds like you have an idylic life - it could be the film Good Life if you had a vinyard. Wife and I love Haute Provence especialy around the Gorges de Verdon, Moustiers St Marie in particular. First discovered on Triumph Silver Jubilee Bonneville heading for Stella Alpina rally.
Installing so many Linux systems surely deserves a medal or some form of gong for relieving the suffering of so many windows users!
Hi! My name is Aleksandra and I’m from Poland, currently living on Fuerteventura. I graduated Mathematics but I work as a receptionist. I was always interested in computers and I use Ubuntu since 2010 (or earlier?).
I consider myself as an intermediate level user always keen on learning new things. I hope to find here many answers and tricks to everyday Ubuntu use. Un saludo!
Hi @Alex_Tom and Welcome to It’ Foss. My name is Howard and I live in Maryland, USA. I’m sure you will be able to find some answers here at Foss as well as maybe give some help of your own. I myself am new to Linux (maybe 2 or 3 years) but started working with computers in 1970.

Hi @susan707 and Welcome to the It’s Foss Community. Jolly old England. Love that country.
Nothing is as it should be though at the moment, we will all get through though, God bless you.
My name is Elí Centeno, and I live in Costa Rica.
I’m a Linux user since 2011 (albeit I knew about it since 2004 because of a Linux magazine that included a gift CD). Currently, I’m between Ubuntu, Peppermint and RAspbian as my main distributions (although I’d like to use some ones like Debian and Slackware).
Currently I’m a undergrad student in the way of getting a licentiate degree in the computer science career (I’ve been in a long time with some career projects and I’m not sure if during this time or after getting the new degree it’s better to work for an enterprise or to go as a freelancer).
I’ve been following It’s FOSS since 2017 (in It’s FOSS Community since 2018), and what I expect from It’s FOSS Community is to learn, know better about and contribute in several ways to Linux and the Free/Libre and Open Source world.
