Hi! My name is Ralph Bacolod. I’m from the Philippines. I wrote this blog to show my love for Linux.
I first heard of linux back in 1998. I was new to the web then. I was hooked the very first time I surfed the web. But I was dismayed that I was using a very poor OS . Who hasn’t experience the dreaded BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death).
That got me started in my quest. Surely there is something better than this.
I found linux!
My first linux was Redhat. It was easy to install .The hard part was repartitioning the hard disk. This was two years ago. I installed redhat on the computer at work. I got the cd from a guy in our local LUG.
This past weeks got me kinda busy. I was busy surfing the web. I was looking for a cheap laptop I could install linux on. I finally bought one from ebay .I got it for $229. It’s a IBM Thinkpad 770x. I haven’t gotten my hands on it yet. It’s still in the post office. I’m gonna pick it up this monday..
Before this laptop,I was basically squatting for my linux experience. I installed Debian on my girls PC and also my sisters PC.
I also bought books so that I could learn more about linux.
