How I got into tech.

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.

I let espeak describe my way through the world of bits and bytes from the punch cards of our Partnerbrigade to my Manjaro-laptop of today.

Great first episode!

I'm always a fan of "How I Found Linux" episodes, but not many have taken me to Eastern Berlin first!

A fascinating story, and hopefully the first of many episodes. Welcome to HPR! :)

Thank you

Thank you for your kind welcome, Windigo! But it wasn't Berlin I lived in, instead a small town not far from the Baltic Sea. I already have ideas for more episodes. We will see when I have the time and if I dare to record my own voice.
