Choosing your Linux distro

Excellent article on how to pick the linux distro that is right for you.

My advice. Leave yourself room for two separate distros on your hard disk. That way you can find one you like ande continue to experiment with the other partition so you can try out others.

My old Vol-camino

Just an old photo of a past project. This was my old Volvo 145 which I decided to convert into a El-Camino style pickup truck.

The project was much harder than I originally intended it to be. It involved cutting the roof off with a circular saw (blade turned backwards...and ummmm no carbide tips pleez they hurt). Removing the glass from the rear doors--filling in the gaps where the windows and such were.

When finished I had no real need for it and it was given to a friend with a farm where it is still in use (I think) today.
