A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Linux Forum

Filed under
Linux
Web

When my Linux Adventure began a few years ago, I did the same thing I did when I was learning the ins and outs of Microsoft Windows, I went searching for a friendly community tech support forum.

I had a bit of a head start in my search for a helpful and friendly Linux forum, though. My favorite Finn, Urmas, had started his Linux Adventure a few months prior to me. He converted. Then he converted his mom. Nowadays he’s one of my fellow Admins over at Scot’s Newsletter Forums – Bruno’s All Things Linux, the very forum where he recommended I go to find the friendly help I was seeking.

The area of Scot’s board that I visit most frequently is, of course, Bruno’s All Things Linux. Not a day has gone by since then that I don’t visit Scot’s – BATL at least once a day.
