Today I installed Linux on my PC ,with the guidance of Shashi.For long I have been waiting for this day,really enjoyed it.
I am a great fan and follower of the revolution called as
opensource.Linux,Perl ,Python,Music,Vedas and Love- all those objects which don’t follow any boundries ,I am for them..
Heared so much about Prof.Stallman and Linus Torvalds ,but it was Dr.Anil Seth in Goa ,who triggered my thoughts in the direction of promoting the Linux and opensource software.In Goa ,I first understood about the Linux user group and various communities involved..Infact I have used and seen GUI’s of almost all the Linux’s in use-Mandrake,Knoppix,Red hat ,SuSe and Fedora2/3 but have not got my hands dirty with the installation .
My Linux is RedHat 3.0 Enterprise edition ,which Shashi received from one of his colleagues.Now my next “Action Item “for the Linux is to install all the required software and files needed for the making up of a small studio ,in whch I can mix the songs with the rythems ,interfacing with the microphones(well soon I am going to buy a home theatre systems)..But yes ,I know I have to work a lot for finding out the things compatible to the Linux..No compromises with Linux man…I’ll do it..
Then second priority will be to learn Perl ,which comes free with the plethora of packages ..
Perl and Python are the languages of the future ,Ihave attended certain workshop on Python-that is where I inculcated this thougth.
I bought a new harddisk of Samsung too,today only.Hopefully it fullfill my ambitions of getting the job comfortably.
I really have no time but if I get it -then you will really find me going in front ,advertising and posting in favour of the Linux.To learn networking in Linux at least to connect 3/4 PC’s to form the home network then to understand the mailing versions of Evolution and Thunderbird is also on the cards.
Someday ,hopefully wil be able to initiate people in using the Linux in all the Internet surfing cafes in town.:-}
