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.

Just a regular story of a Linux power user, or how I loved computers, then I hated computers, then I loved computers again, and then I moved to a love/hate kind of thing...

Wrote a novel for the pleasure of using the word processor? If that isn't the quote of a hacker, I don't know what is. :)
