Good Evening Boys and Girls. Salam Sejahtera to all.
I have been discussing about this since my last blog, munmonlisme ver.1. Well, that did not survive my last financial crisis. Hence, the new version emerges. On with the topic.
Let me see, my first computer was a 8086 in 1986. It was a new experience for me. All I ever knew was playing games. Dig Dug, Alleycats and Montezuma Curse. That was a long time ago. There’s no Windows or any Shell Management at that time. Just plain CMD. MS-DOS was the tool of the trade. Funny to think about it.
Then, the technology moved on. 286, 386 and 486 and finally Pentium. My OS were Windows 3.11 and Windows 95. Followed by Windows 98 and finally Windows XP. When I could afford me own Personal Computer, Windows XP was the OS of choice. Installation was easy and straight forward. Games were plentiful for Windows XP.
There was a time, I was eager to try Linux and gave Mandrake a chance. I did not like it. Trashed it and reverted to Windows. Then came Red Hat, but hey no MP3 support. At that time, I had no Internet connection to seek for help. SuSe came along after that and still dual booted with Windows. I used it for a while.
One day, I came to know about Ubuntu, new Linux Distro and decided to gave it a try. My final days with Windows was a result of one stupid mistake. Truthfully, I am careless, I pressed next and next and next without realizing the cause. Boom!! me Windows Installation and all Important files were gone. lol. Idiot I was at that time. However, I was bold at that time to try out Ubuntu. What was the used of returning to Windows if all files and installations were gone. Go ahead with Ubuntu, this I said to me self. That was in the year of 2006.
I am considered lucky to have the wits and ability to learn something new very fast. Fast learner as all call it. PHP, VB, MySQL, Linux even Windows, I have no idea at first. All of my IT knowledge are learnt by reading and experience. Self-Taught almost all of them. You’ve got to have the willingness to learn to be successfull. Here I am today with Ubuntu as my only OS.
What makes me love Ubuntu, I can never tell. I just love it. Plus, the new Visual Effect enchants me. Hey, Windows XP and Vista can’t do what Linux can. Linux users do not have to be wary of Viruses and malwares, spywares, and trojan. Very true, Windows own the dekstop but the numbers are diminishing as the day passes. Same with the case of Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Heh, I just love open source applications.
Take Care now.
