became a Linux user a several years ago.
I was a Windows user
who was tired of being
manipulated and bullied by Microsoft (I now
refer to them as "Microsith").
I'd had enough of spyware, viruses,
bloated software, and increasingly being told what
and cannot do with the software I purchased.
The last straw was
when Microsith started spying on
its customers through Windows Genuine
(I suspect sooner, but can't prove it)!
began searching for an alternative to Windows, and
tried various Linux
distributions. Eventually, I found
Linux was a good choice.
It was easy to install, allowed me to easily setup a dual
boot system with
Windows & Linux on the same computer.
I was impressed right
Everything was easy to use and
configure to my delight!
software was a snap with one exception:
was plentiful, but it lacked the "pretty stuff"
most new users like to
work with when they get a new system.
The defaults were good, don't get
me wrong, but most users
want to feel like they are in control of their
shiny new systems,
and the first place they go to gain that initial
changing their wallpaper, color, Icons, themes, etc.
now that I've become an intermediate to advanced
user, I've set out to
correct the one thing I feel is
missing in theLinux world by providing repositories
of the stuff I've found missing.(A repository is a place
to download & install
where this new site comes in!
put together a small collection of these things
in hopes of making it
easier for new Linux users.
