Clive here, from South Africa. Retired Electrical Engineer (heavy current, high voltage). 78 years young. Signed on to a Linux course in the last century, they were using Red Hat as I recall. I didn’t really follow up due to pressure of “life”…
I held on to W95, DOS, DBase and WordPerfect as long as possible but eventually had to give up to the windows bloat and expense.
It started when my wife’s little Acer One notebook became a paperweight and I revived it with Linux Mint. I quickly followed this by dual booting Mint 17.3 on my desktop.
Then, recently a neat little HP Stream was presented to my wife but Win10 clogged up the SSD leaving no working space. I got Mint (17.3) to clean out windows and install itself… Everything just worked, from our WiFi to the WiFi printer etc and there is now plenty of drive space!
I have been following FOSS for as long as it appeared on Facebook - Thanks Abhishek, really appreciate your great undertaking!
I do not have “the answers” for a lot of Linux stuff and hope that this great group will assist in my learning.
By the way I am a bike riding enthusiast (BMW tourer) and a Nikon camera user (3 DSLR’s ++). So darktable questions and the possibility of using Nikon MS software on Linux are some questions :>)
