In the fall of 1990 my brother-in-law gave me his old DOS runnin' Compaq because he graduated into the wonderful world of Microsoft's Windows GUI. I followed a year later and was a Windows guy for the next 25 years. I never dipped a toe into Mac-Land because even though Apple made computers "for the rest of us" ... I guess I didn't have as much money as the rest of us. In 2015 I tired of MS Windows. To be more precise ... I was weary of dealing with Windows freezing/crashing/breaking and sucking up hours and hours of fixing the problem so I could get back to whatever I was doing before disaster struck. So ... I installed Linux and became a dual boot Linux/Windows guy. Herein lies many tales of computer geekery. Read on. Pack a lunch.
