Hi everyone,

another Brit here.

I suspect I'm one of the older members of the Linux community at 51. I've been using various distros for a year or so (Puppy, Ubuntu, Sabayon) and have just recently discovered Pardus. As somebody with no formal computer training I have found it very easy to use, the only hiccup being getting the correct Nvidia driver to work, but I managed this after a couple of days.

When I installed Pardus I chose to format the drive that had previously contained Vista (which I had only looked at for a couple of days before rejecting it), so now I am totally Linux, able to boot into Pardus, Sabayon and Ubuntu, but I have to admit I haven't booted into anything but Pardus since I installed it.

Hi csaenemy

Another Brit here (Yorkshire).  50 last week, and struggling to get used to it!

I've used Pardus for about 18 months, dual booting with Ubuntu after a long journey trying Arch, Sidux, Mepis, Sabayon and lots more.

Have fun!

Welcome, csaenemy, and glad to have you are.  You have me curious as to what csa stands for; Community Supported Agriculture, Canadian Standards Association, Central Service Association, or maybe I shouldn't ask?   Grin

Waf, you are terrible.  Grin  Yes, that is me on the left, same hair colour, though a bit tall for me.   Wink

I forgot to mention that is is nice to see a picture of Bubbel and read about his interests.  We have a breakfast sausage brand sold at grocers called, Sauerland.  I buy it because it does not contain MSG.
Oh, I want a Pardus t-shirt!  I just don't know how to order one from Turkey. 

Thanks for sharing your website, bubbel!

This forum seems like a nice friendly place.
