Wow, I am in same boat Daniel and I at other end of the Linux community
with nearly no knowledge of how to set up anything that does not work
with point&click. I can't get VM to work but I haven't time at the
moment to learn what to do. So I have to wait till I can spend a day or
Most of the time I dunno even what to ask. I really thank you for your
very clear explanations and you show patience and understanding often
along with many on this list. I hope the recent ego outages become
points of understanding instead cause i think this community is worth
hanging in there for. For all-us and I think we do pretty good as a
whole. Works for me.
