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 will apologize now for some of the rough sound. This was recorded on a very old Sony tape recorder (all I had at the time). Hopefully, the tape hiss will cover up some of my Kentucky accent. Or vice versa. Whatever. This is the saga of me. And Linux.

Nice show

I enjoyed your show, FYI Icepack Linux had a release in 2015 based on kernel 3.10.66.

Thanks for the kind words, and the heads-up on Icepack linux! I had no idea they made a comeback.
