Part of the series: How I Found Linux

Started by monsterb, this series invites people to share with us how they found Linux. It has become traditional for first time hosts to share with us their journey to Linux. Indeed it has morphed to be way to share your journey in tech right up to your first contribution to HPR.

The proprietary software device that does not allow printing or saving information without "key" was called "Design Key" or "Software Dongle" by myself. This is the brand "we used" (were provided) by design software (CAD type) kitchen and bathroom design program. (This is the "dongle" device. I do not care if I mention the proprietary software name. It's not very good and it's . . . well, proprietary.)
