Hello fellow users
I decided to come back online and maybe to help some if I can. I had the same nickname on the Bodhi forums.
I'm a electrical engineer with a PhD in electrical motors and I now work as a project manager.
I've used PCs since 1992 and got my first one in 1996 (an AMD 5x86). I had many-many PCs and laptops; some years ago I was some sort of hardware guru.
I've used many OSes starting with DOS, and I learned programming in high-school (GW Basic, Turbo Pascal, that sort of thing). I hate Windows and most Micro$hit products, although I did use their OSes... the only decent one was Windows 98SE. The involution of them started after 98SE was just disgusting. Unfortunately I have to use at work Windows 10, but do use a Virtual machine for some fresh air.
I've started using Linux in high-school ( I think it was Slackware) for networking.. that was before the www era. After some sporadic tries with Redhat, Mandrake and others I don't remeber I started to use Ubuntu and Lubuntu for a while (I quite liked LXDE). I found out about Bodhi Linux in a post in Ubuntu forums while trying to solve the problem of Ubuntu not running on a non-PAE laptop (IBM Thinkpad X22). I've used Bodhi since 2.2 and was (still am) pretty satisfied by it.
Following Jeff's initial abandon of the project I looked at other variants of Linux but none had the frugality and elegance of Bodhi so I was pretty happy when the project resurrected.
As for other things I like privacy, motorcyles, photography and music... and Bodhi.
