I have been waiting for this for a long time, so now i am going to crisin it with mindless bable because now that its finally here I have nothing good to say.

So I am going to let this thread be the just general get started thread. Come in, say hi, tell the guys how cool you think it is that we now have a general forum. Finally a place where I can talk linux with people who actualy care as opposed to the people who just smile and not and go back to thier windows.

Actually, this week, it's an advantage for a lot of the computers to have Windows 98 installed on them because of the sasser worm that's going around. While, as far as i know, Win98 can still carry and distribute the worm, it doesn't do much to the system itself.

Very few colleges in my area have even heard of Linux, nevermind actually having labs with it installed. I've only started here in this school 4 months, and only started having classes with the sys admin as my teacher for the last 2, and since then, I have convinced him of the power, freedom and security of Linux. He even took the class one friday to an open source seminar that was being held up the street and he said that it was very interesting.

I'm just hoping that one of these days, he will be convinced to change over an entire lab to linux to test it out. Say, the labs that host the Office courses, and still use MS office through Wine or something. Not sure what else I can do smile.gif
