I first came across UNIX (like) operating systems in late 1993, and Linux possibly in mid 1994. I used to use it to telnet into Internet chat BBS services, Such as LUCS (Latrobe University Computer Society) and TFS (The Far Side, Canberra University) and ISCA (Iowa State Computer Association). I spent many hours online. ALL of it accessed from with in a Unix command prompt. I would spend several hours a day online on these BBSs right up until late 2003.

By using Linux to access these sites I learnt a lot about how Linux worked.

i still log into the remaining BBS Sometimes. maybe once a week for a couple of minutes to read any updates. Sometimes its several weeks between visits.

But I realised the other day, its been AGES since I have really used Linux to do anything useful. I have forgotten most of what I knew about it. I could probably pick up most of what I used to know, VERY quickly... just right at the moment I have completely forgotten everything. Making me pretty much an exclusive Windows Geek.

That is all, really. Just needed to comment on my Linux Usage.
