Welcome Rainer greetings from Germany .Hello world...
this is the third forum I have joined. The first one was about a car and the second ons about a computer game.
I am Rainer, 57, German, having learned some UNIX in a course and used it a bit (6 months) at work as a normal user. I have a university degree in computer-science and was working as an IT-specialist for more than 30 years.
Privately, I've used only Windows-PCs and Mac. I really believe that with using mainstream stuff you don't do anything wrong and consequently I tried to stay away from the Linux world.
Currently, I need to buy new hardware and I am considering to get a new desktop with Linux (probably Ubuntu because I don't hear too many complaints... again, my mainstream thinking) installed. If I would choose to do so, I will probably become a pretty active member of this forum and I am looking forward to get in contact with other nerds to exchange ideas.
