    I'm just kidding.

    I'm Chris, former Apple fanboy but looking to convert to something more functional and lightweight. Linux seems appealing choice but I'm also newcomer to this world.

    I'm currently living in Sydney but over my lifetime I have lived in 5 different countries and 10+ cities. I just love to travel. I'm currently 28. I'm also an entrepreneur and I have owned/operated 10+ businesses so far.

    Just wanted to say hi. :)

    Hey Darren,
    I actually came across few of your videos earlier. It seems that you know your stuff.

    I humbly submit these guys know there stuff, namely Spatry and Totalos I'm just a hobbyist at best but I have gleaned much info from trying different distros known as distro hopping.

    At times seeing what happens before it breaks.

    I have been playing around since before Redhat started Fedora.

    Welcome.

    Hopefully after being a member of this forum for a while, you will have seen the light. :)

    Just a side note that Apple OSX is sourced from a form of Unix and more closely to FreeBSD :)

    This may interest you http://elementaryos.org/
    It's a Ubuntu-based Linux that's very user friendly and almost a clone of OS X.

    Nephilim,
    Already found it and I'm impressed. Luna looks gorgeous and mature. :)
