I heard about Linux and decided to check it out by diving in head first. I
found out it was easier to manage my C and Java coding, applications for
everything were free and fairly good, and I got interested by messing around
with a new type of toy. I got addicted to the options, the security, the
infatuation with the ability to fix software bugs myself.
