Hello Bodhi, Zagreb calling!

Recommended Posts

Namaste, my Bodhi friends!

I'm just your average 23 y/o student doing stuff that nobody really cares about. 

 

When did you start using Linux?

About 3 months ago.

 

Why did you start using Linux?

I'm not really sure. I was a Windows one trick pony who knew nothing of the miracles that open-source OS can provide. If I had to name one reason why I prefer Linux over Windows, its probably because I feel like I'm not just clicking on cute little icons or using a setup wizard (next,next,finish), I feel like I'm really computing.

 

Why did you start using Bodhi?

My first distro was Kubuntu. Now, don't get me wrong, I liked it very much and it helped me figure out this whole Linux thingy. I think, as a transitional distro, Kubuntu is pretty good. After a few weeks, I grew bored and surfed distrowatch.com all day. After a few really REALLY interesting weeks of literally downloading every single distro I could lay my hands on, I settled for LXLE. And it was fine, for a certain amount of time. After some time, I thought to myself: "Bodhi-buddha, surely you don't need a lightweight distro of this proportions, you can probably find something better". So after a few days of thorough searching, I found Bodhi. The first thing I probably saw was the word ENLIGHTENED. I cracked a smile and though to myself, this is probably the distro for me. I feel like Bodhi is a perfect combination of a distro that's capable of doing everything you want, but without all the clutter. So far, so good.

 

Transitional distro? You think you've transitioned your simple Windows mindset into the great Linux master race in only 3 months?

Actually, I don't think I have. I'm pretty beaten up about the fact that I didn't start using Linux at an early age, and now I'm trying to make up for lost years. I know my Linux proficiency is sub par but I really like learning about it. Got a good recommendation for literature? Send it my way :)

 

So you're from Zagreb?

Yeah, I live in Zagreb, Croatia. That little country in Europe that kind of looks like a dragon.

 

You're a student?

Yup, I have a bachelors degree in IT and I'm working towards masters. 

 

Favorite IDE?

Visual Studio

 

Favorite language?

C#, no doubt about it.

 

Favorite Bodhi feature?

Gotta be the AisleRiot Solitaire. I'm seriously hooked. I vaguely remember playing it when i was a kid and not understanding what the hell I'm doing. I spend an hour a day playing Solitaire.

 

Can I be your friend?

Sure, add me up and we can chat all day buddy.

 

Seriously?

Yeah, I'm not as active on this forum as I'd like to be, but I'll check it out a few times a day.

 

So, that's about it.

Cheers to all my Buddhas!

Unique self-introduction :D. Welcome here...

 

EDIT:

you are never too old for learning new stuff. I have been using Linux just a few years. Still considered to be a newbie although I am 41 years old. And about you literature question:

Don't be scared with amount of pages. Just pick up what you are interested in and read. I have found this Linux bible just week ago and it looks pretty sufficient for my needs. Enjoy :)

Welcome bodhi-buddha!

 

...from a Angular, C# and SQL developer...  but lately more into programming with Python.

Bodhi has a nice philosophy and community. I like the simplicity, good looks and doesn't get in the way.
