    Hello Linux community. As you can see, my screen name is brainard52. I'm not so much a noob. I just have incomplete knowledge. I love to think of myself as a computer nerd/geek and I like to say that I strive to become a better nerd/geek every day. I'm an avid Pokenerd, and I love other such childish things as Megaman and Yu-Gi-Oh!. I play Magic the Gathering as well. I love my gadgets. I currently have just a laptop and an android phone (Xperia Play). I'm an Ubuntu user, just because I'm lazy and it's simple (and because I'm not an expert in anything that has to do with computers yet). I started with Slackware 10 or 11, I don't remember. I remember hearing somewhere that went something like, "If you want to learn Ubuntu, use Ubuntu. If you want to learn Linux, use Slackware." I think I learned the most in the shortest period of time while I was using Slackware. Anyway, I want to learn software development, particularly C++ or Java. I've tried, but I am never able to fin time for it, but it will come soon enough. And to end, I'll say that I hope to contribute to the community the best I can.

    Sent from the R800x (CM9) that I wish were an Ubuntu Android.

    Hey there brainard52, that's a pretty good introduction of yourself you have there! :p

    Welcome to Linux Forum.

    Talking about Ubuntu and Android, ubuntu can be installed on Few Mobile/Tablets with smaller screens. For my mobile Nokia N900 there's a whole thread about it's installation process and it's done with LXDE : http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=66531

    Hey brainard52! No one ever has complete knowledge about Linux, so welcome aboard! I'm not a big fan of Pokemon and such (though I do play MtG with my fiance), but my fiance loves Yugioh. If you're looking for some Pokemon cards I can send you a list of what she's currently selling and see if you're interested?

    As for the learn x use x statement, I hate those. Its from elitist who don't acknowledge that Linux is moving more mainstream (or they hate the fact its happening). Ubuntu is no less Linux than Slackware is, Slackware just has a rep for being a really low-level install (i.e.: Gentoo).

    I know a lot of languages (Assembly, C/++ & PHP mostly, but a collection of others too), so if you have any questions feel free to post on here.

    Thanks for replying :D I will most definitely ask if I have any questions. Also, for the competitive pokemon, I play the videogames. Sixty buck investment every few years, and then just training. Pretty much self-sustaining. Anyway, I was just stating that Slackware was aimed at more advanced users than Ubuntu (thus Learn Linux = Slackware). I have tried BSD (freeBSD, I believe), but that just confused me. I think once I get a bit more knowledgable with how how things work I'll try again.
  6. Nice to see you here, brainard52! I hope to see you around the community a lot :)
