I’ve always been a mainstream computer user. I’ve never really bothered to find linux definitions or explanations, because I’ve never really been a linux user. Since I started dating a math and computer geek (in the best and hottest sense of the words), I’ve indirectly and unintentionally started to find linux definitions. Sometimes from my fiance, sometimes from his friends, and sometimes just from association (you get close to people and you just start to pick up on stuff, yanno).
Find linux exploration
I’m naturally a curious person, so the more I started to find linux information the more curious I got about how exactly it worked and how exactly it differed from the computer technology and software that I had been dealing with my whole life. I started exploring this whole new find linux world that I had kind of accidentally stumbled into. I played around with my fiance’s computer, trying to find linux differences for myself (that didn’t do a whole lot for me, since I’m kind of lost on computers without my fiance sitting next to me, but hey I tried).
Find linux distraction
I did get distracted a little in my find linux mission, by videos like the one above. Yes, a nice find linux information tutorial is nice and helpful and all, and yes I’m glad that videos about how to find linux stuff is not always just done by and for men, but that shirt/dress thing…really? I tend to easily get distracted from missions like my find linux mission by the little things. Like girls showing off a bit too much for my taste. I’ve been called a prude, old-fashioned, even annoying. But hey, a girl is entitled to her opinion, right? I mean, if they’re entitled to wear whatever they want, I’m entitled to feel however I want about their clothes. But back to our mission: find linux.
Find linux conclusion
Did I find linux? Good question. Umm…let me get back to you on that. All joking aside, I think I am still trying to find linux. I’m one of those lifelong learning types, and I still feel that my mission of find linux is not yet done. I don’t know nearly everything there is to know. I feel like I know hardly any of what there is to know. I would like to know more, learn more, find linux more. And perhaps I will. After all, I am going to be married to a computer guy.
I have a couple of friends, both techies, who use it and encouraged me to give the test of Linux vs Windows a try. I finally did after ANOTHER frustrating experience with Windows, and one of them helped me install Linux. It is an operating system, just like Windows and Mac, but it’s what they call an open source system. Open Source means that anyone can write programs for it, but as soon as you offer it, other techies around the world are going to scrutinize it for suspicious content – hence there are no viruses with Linux. There are thousands of apps that you can install, and it runs OpenOffice. Caveat: I tried to install something a couple of weeks ago, and now I can’t get it to boot up, so I’m back to Windows for the time being. Don’t try the Linux vs Windows test unless you have a good, available techie to help you out in a bind. Sounds negative, but you have the same problem with Windows for sure, and maybe Mac as well. One feature that I really like is that when you turn it on, you’re ready to go in less than 30 seconds, and it turns off in 5 seconds, instead of the 90 that Windows takes. Linux takes a little getting used to, layout and such, but overall I like Linux. Maybe Linux For Dummies would be helpful. P.S. Linux is free which makes taking the Linux vs Windows test very appealing.
