    Cool Finally Converted


    The Apple IIGS represented my advancement into the modern era of computing. Prior, I had been using an older Apple model, with super advanced games like Oregon Trail! Or the Atari like Texas Instruments.

    I suppose, in retrospect, the main reason why I never chose to use Linux is because I was always a few years behind in technology pining for getting what my friends had already gotten tired of. Just getting my first GUI, I couldn't see myself converting back to a DOS like computer.

    I actually had written my first computer programs in DOS to create some GUI programs so I could experience what my friends had already. It was not until many years later when I realized how valuable starting to write in a language as complicated as Basic at the age of 8 could have been had I continued it.

    A technical writer now, programming is one of my daily duties, however, I realize now how much cooler stuff I could be doing had I kept at it.

    Better late than never huh?

    Howdy and Welcome.
    Better late than never is our motto. Glad that you decided to see what all the hoopla is about and we hope you continue to use Linux.

    Thanks! I was not sure what to expect when I posted here. I have not been on Forums since I was a teenager, back when they were first being created. It feels good to be coming home again, so to speak.

    I think I'm going to kick my feet up and stay.
