Please introduce yourself

Welcome to our community Monica .
As my friend @cordx has replied it is best you if you start a new topic, because this is really the place just to introduce yourself and by doing so it means you’ll get the widest possible help. That and it stops us Mods from being grumpy :wink: but that could be just me. Just for future reference okay. Enjoy your stay with us and ask away and contribute as much as you want

Dear Daniel,

Sorry for replying to you very late. Tried “Wordgrinder”. You are right, it is a pretty neat text based wordprocessor. It brought back my old memories.

Thanks and Regards.

Indonesia (quick info : stayed in Qatar before)
Currently an undergraduate student in a university in Indonesia, 10th semester (lol), majoring Information Technology.
Linux user since…1 or 2 months ago? Yes, I’m still VERY new in Linux :D.
Linux Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Couple of days after installing Linux Ubuntu on my laptop lol :3D.
Always stay “FOSS (Free and Open Source Software)” :), and not just talk about one specific technology, but if possible, “everything”. Why? For a better understanding in life lolll. Yes, I mean it :smile: .

And I’m a boy, just in case (?).

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!

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.

Hi Terry
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.

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
windows 8.1)
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

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! :medal_military: :trophy:
