I've updated to Linux-Mandrake 8.2, and I'm a bit proud to say I'm on the internet in a non-MS environment on my home system for the first time.
I'm wondering: is there an LJ community for new users of Linux? Searching for 'linux' in interests yields too many results for LJ to show and there's no group or username of 'linuxnewbie'.
Side note: as someone who used to prefer the DOS commandline, it's incredible to be working with bash, even with my rudimentary knowledge of it...I kind of resent the fact that people act like it is so prohibitively difficult to learn. I would've made more of an effort to snag Linux earlier if I had known more about it.
