computer learning today

I completely agree with the level of learning with computers today, so much of computer programming is opaque. Learning today seems to be, "oh i learned i needed to do sudo infront of apt-get, pip-install blah". Old computers, slackware install disks, forth on microcontrollers is the place to go to actually learn. Thanks for the show. Good to hear the roads are bad in other places than northwest ohio!
