My Linux

I addict to linux. I have been playing/working with linux for many years, since redhat 4, 5??, Can’t remember where I started. In fact I started with unix, it was powerful, but the hardware requirement was very unfriendly. As soon as I discovered Linux, I lured to it. Some guys joked, alike “Bob Hawke’s move from Hazel to Blanche[1][2]“. The evolution is mazy journey. In early days, It is not ordinary users’ tool. Not easy to install, hardware and drive suitability were poor. Now, in particular, major credit to the Ubuntn (Ebuntn, Xbuntn etc), linux almost becomes everyone’s toy if you want to try. However, I still am loyal to redhat tribe, although it evolves to fedora 13. Here is summary of this configuration for my fedora 13.
