Windows 10, an almost dead laptop, OS-tans and the future

Hi.  It’s been a while.  A lot has happened in the past few months of my absence.  I hopped back to Windows, almost killed my computer, have developed an odd fondness for OS-tans (blame tPenguinLTG. Also, #Ai4Lyfe) and I’m currently debating switching distros.  So, let’s talk about what happened on my absence. Continue reading


Life with PCLinuxOS (so far)

Hi again!

So it’s been a couple months with PCLinuxOS, and all the problems I previously had have been ironed out, for the most part.  I figured that I’d give you my thoughts on using PCLOS now that I have been able to gather my thoughts without worrying about display drivers and whatnot. Continue reading

Hello there!

My name is DdcCabuslay.  I am one of the authors who will be sharing my first-time experience with Linux.

A little brief bio of myself; I consider myself a tech nerd.  I immerse myself in news from the world of smartphones and video games.  I myself am an Android user and a gamer (primarily Nintendo).  As for computers, I’ve used Windows my whole life, and my current machine runs Windows 7.

For my Linux distro of choice, I will be using PCLinuxOS.  It was recommended to me by tPenguinLTG as a distro for the “Windows know-it-all” type of people.  As a 2nd year Computer Science student, it’s going to be important for me to understand the ins and outs of Linux, as it’s an OS that’s going to play an important role in a computer scientist’s future.  I will begin my first Linux focused class in Winter 2015.

That’s enough about me for now.  If you’re on Twitter, you can follow me @DdcCabuslay if you want to hear me complain about everything.  We’ll talk soon!
