Duration: 00:13:08


In this show, I cover my early years learning code in the late 60s. I move on to my history with home computers, and finding out about Linux around 2007 or so. I comment on Ubuntu and Mint. I mention dual booting and my one episode of triple booting.

Listeners, this is my first attempt at a show. It's not that hard, and I would like to hear from others as to how they got to Linux.

Nice show

I really enjoyed your first show, great to have you on board. you might just save the HPR audience from my threat of doing an episode about how to fold fitted sheets. ;) you mentioned that you would like to hear how are the people got into Linux and you can probably find many of these episodes in the hpr archives. I did not do a separate episode about getting into Linux but I did talk about it with NYbill during the course of my first HPR appearance here at about 22 minutes into the episode. I'm looking forward to your future shows. --jk
