My GNU/Linux journey, part 1: Introduction

Hello and welcome back to my humble blog!

It has been a while (more like years, almost 3!), but here we are. This blog has been through a lot, mostly through so many comebacks and then hiatuses, again and again, but I always end up coming back and having new plans for it.

However, this time is, hopefully, different. The reason being me switching completely to FOSS (Free* and Open Source Software), ideologically and practically, where applicable.

Even though I have been a GNU/Linux user since 2010, starting with Ubuntu 10.04 (I am old ^^”), I have never really understood what GNU/Linux is, why it exists and what it stands for. That is, until a little over a year ago, when I stumbled on one of my all time favorite content creators and GNU/Linux youtuber, DistroTube.

The goal of this mini series, which I have been planning to write for a while now, is to share my journey of leaving propriatry programs/mindset and fully becoming a GNU/Linux user and a FOSS advocate. By sharing it, I hope to spread the message and meaning of FOSS in general and help those who want to, potentially, switch to GNU/Linux from Windows or Mac. I would also like to share what I’ve learned so far, everything from new GNU/Linux lingo, to programming, to using the actual OS and even to the somewhat nerdy advanced stuff. I have a lot to share! :D.

This will be all for now, I want this to be short and sweet, because what’s coming is very interesting and long for sure.

For all my lovely followers, for years now, thank you for your constant support, and I hope you also check this out, even if you’re not a techie kind of person, you might find something for you in here.

As always, questions and suggestions are always welcome and much appreciated! ^_^

Until the next part,

*Free as in freedom or libre not the cost ‘gratis’, because a FOSS project might be either gratis or paid, the importance is not in the price. More on this in the next part.
