  1. Greetings folks, I don't necessarily know what the policies are here on TechSpot about advertising, I mean no harm by the following action.

    I am humbly inviting all Linux users, programmers, mod specialists and the like to check out TechSpot's new Linux group, started by yours truly. I have taken the liberty in starting a Linux group, for I am quickly become a fanatic over the Operating System. I know and feel that Microsoft Windows has the vast majority of places here on the net to call home, this place isn't going to be one of them.

    So I'm humbly requesting some help here in trying to get this group launched and off the ground!

    I now introduce The Linux Bar & Grill group....

    "Thank you very much for your time & I hope to see some of you folks there"!

    I wanted to pop in and thank several of our members for joining this Linux based group. Also I wanted to remind people that this is a (public) group, and that the invite to join is still in full effect! The only one prerequisite for membership, is that some how or someway Linux by any one of it's "distro's" or "flavors", has touched your life in any way.

    So come on by and give it a look, and join up if you wish!

    Thanks...............:)

    Does having Puppy Linux as an alternate OS counts? xD

    Thanks Zen! I plan on making it my primary OS because my laptop can't handle XP very well. It only has 246MB of RAM which is very small.

    Puppy Linux runs fine in my laptop so I might make the switch. :)

    I'm going to have to look into this "Puppy Linux" thing! Never heard of it, until Abe brought it up. But if two people here can rave about being it's fan, within a 24 hour time period, I think it might be worth while to research.

    I will let you know what I think..................

    I'll join up, unfortunately i have to post that I'm going to join to actually join!

    I need 20 posts to join a social group and have 19.

    Anyway, big ubuntu nerd, love it to death, hosting my minecraft server on Ubuntu and TRYING to host a dungeon crawl stone soup server. Having lots of difficulties with the latter.

    Anyway thanks for the humble invitation !

    No worries dude :)

    I've been using W7 everyday since building my temp system, and I have to say i am seriously missing not having Linux for every day usage.

    Can't wait to get my new system built in the next few weeks, and order up another SSD to finally throw Linux back on, and use everyday. :D
