    Hello, after having an on again/off again relationship w/Linux since 2000, I've decided to go all the way in. Currently running Ubuntu 16.04 on an old HP laptop (formerly Windows 7---which I've wiped clean). Also, I'm familiar w/CentOS7. I'm a bit rusty in BASH, so I'm relearning commands. I've taken several Linux courses along the way, i.e. EdX Intro to Linux and currently StackSkills Learn Linux... Interested in taking/passing the LFCS exam :)

    Hi @relbcool, and welcome to the site! It sounds like you're well on your way... you shouldn't have taken so long! :D

    If you have any problems/questions, just open up a new thread in one of the forums and ask away. We will sure try to help if we can.

    Cheers

    I like the light sabre Tux avatar :D

    (Wizard appears in a puff of smoke, dodges light-sabre-wielding penguin ... too slow, loses legs to knees, thumbs in book of spells for incantation to re-grow legs)

    So what prompted the epithany? Too much privacy invasion, too many BSODs?

    Welcome to Heaven linux.org, where you can chill & have fun with Linux :cool:

    Welcome aboard. I agree that your chosen avatar is way cool!:cool::cool:. I hope that wiz has found the proper spell to grow his legs back. If not, perhaps I can make him some new ones, nyuk, nyuk.:D

    Happy Trails,
    Paul
