Remember my introduction post? Yeah, that one.
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Dreadnought Six. I was the former administrator for the somewhat popular tech blog named Tech Gum. I currently write freelance in my personal yet nonexclusive blog called the Unfinished Basement.
To many, I am a friend. To some, I am a foe. To only but a few, I am a brother. But to one, and one only, I am a lover.
I am currently a first year Computer Science student, and rightfully so, I am lazy (which is probably why you’re seeing this post on Christmas Eve). I am a devoted born again Christian, a professional League of Legends practitioner, and a 5-time Pokemon Master (captured: 652). I’ve been a Windows user my entire life, with a small part of my life (I namely called the ‘iDark Ages’) liking the Apple brand. The main author of this blog, tPenguinLTG, is a close friend of mine (you decide) and as he so desperately needed to, introduced me to the world of Computer Science (seriously, I was suppose to be chef) and to the world of Linux.
The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

I find a sense of freedom in Linux, which is why I’ve decide to take the leap of faith. I’m not yet entirely engrossing myself into the operating system which means I’ll still have my Windows 7 partition. I’ve decided long before this blog existed, that I’d install Linux Mint. Alas, I’ve seen a new operating system named CrunchBang (#!), to which I fell in love with the moment I saw it.
Hey, look who decided to drop by! I don’t know how you found your way here, but we’re glad you came.
The other two bloggers who will be joining me are Dreadnought Six and DdcCabuslay. These two wanted to “learn Linux”, and as an experienced Linux user who has already made the switch to Arch Linux, they asked me for advice on how to get started. I recommended PCLinuxOS with KDE to Ddc,
and DSix wanted to jump right into “hard mode” and use Arch Linux. as his primary distribution.
