How a poor boy of an in development country know Linux?
All starts with a simple fail, i need to use a computer, but it doesnot have Hard disk. Flash Drives was so expensive for me, so i rebember of an old conversation with one of my friends:
"I discovered that exist an Operational Sistem where there is no need for Hard Disk, it is Kurumin", it was Kurumin Linux.
So i gone to my friends house and get one of this old Kurumin CDs, and run it by Live CD. WOW what was that? Runing just on RAM, on a old computer, it was faster than <the other> OS. Time passed and I got money enough to buy a HD, so I decided to install Kurumin in Dual Boot with <the other> OS.
After this i become sad because of some comments about the discontinuity of the Kurumin project. I quit Linux by a month when other friend tell me about Debian, so i downloaded it (yes on this time i become a University Student and get Internet), and instaled it.
WOW again ! another world, another Level!
I started with Debian etch, in January this Year, so i was tenpted to try Debian Lenny. Yes, i gone! Some time past and i get a faster computer and continued using Debian Lenny, now with 1GB RAM! Testing is Great!
Time passed and Lenny Become Stable! Wow it was fantastic! But i could not wait 2 days before going to Squeeze, where i am Now.
The live with Gnu/Linux is SO EXCITING!, last week i tried to compile a new Linux Kernel. It fails, but this week i will try harder!
Thank you Linux and GNU developers, you make me become a free man! Now i can use a computer, and change what i want on my PC! Thank you i can use a computer now!
