For starters I’d like to thank David Crouse for all his work on the archlinux.us email addresses and now this blog site.
Funnily enough, right now I’m using Gentoo, not Arch. I still have an Arch install, but primarily I’m using Gentoo.
A little about my computer:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 3.0Ghz
nVidia GeForce 8500
2GB mushkin RAM
640GB WD HDD
Mac OS X (iDeneb) Leopard
Alright, so now a little about myself:
Anyway, my dad does remodeling work around town, and sometimes I will work with him to make some money. One Mr. Chinque that we worked for found out about my interest in computers and recommended that I look into ‘Lie-nuex’ (as he properly pronounced it). Turns out he wrote ASM compilers in the late ’80s and early ’90s, so he knew what he was talking about. So, that’s how i got here. 3 years after trying Ubuntu 6.something-or-other.
I tried Gentoo before Arch, and my computer at the time was slow enough that I gave up before I finished the install. So, finding Arch also minimalist (and liking it’s init system better) I have had an installation of it for the past year or so. I don’t ever anticipate that changing.
Thanks again Crouse!!
