I expected you to be at least 15, judging by your posts. But that's nice that you are so young, yet inclined towards Linux. I didn't even know how to make presentation at your age :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Interesting fact, I have been using computer since I was 5. Though it was just playing games on my elder cousins pc. We were in joint family back then. At that time, we were the only ones in the whole neighborhood with a computer. It was not easy even to maintain one in those times. IIRC, there were no computer shops at all in our city. Even if there was a minor issue in the pc, which were quite common, he had to go to neighboring city, Kurukshetra, around 45 km from our city on bike, with computer on deck. It was really fun to see him that way :joy: .
Alas, I don't even know the specs of the first computer I used! (It was sold long ago)

Anyways, I am adult now.

As long as you wake up and go to the bathroom, everything is still okay. :smiley:

Summary

I sleep through the night, wake up regularly at 7am, 7:30 am bowel movement, then get up around 8am to eat breakfast.

Age: 42
Mental age: Stupid

Started with linux in 1998, next day ran away crying.
think I went back to linux again around 2012, on and off, was busy playing games, linux wasn't made for gaming yet.
Now I'm messing around with 8 different distro's on my drive, bit daring, don't know when everything breaks. Broke Grub a week ago, fixed it tho... I was like o.O, did I just do that... REPAIR STUFF???

Got a MSI Delta 15, man, learned more about linux the past week than i did the last 5 years.

MSI Delta 15, a beast and a headache! But I love it!!

Physically? I am really starting to feel "it." I keep checking behind me to see if a body part fell off like an old muffler. :red_car:

I started "dabbling" with linux when a somewhat decent installer entered the scene. What was that, early to mid 90's?
