1. How long did it take you to get a good handling of Linux?[/quote]
I started out with Red Hat 6.0 and it took me about 3 months to know how things work. But it took me only two days to find out my NIC card needs to have IRQ passed on manually ( via config file ). So ......
It was in late 1999 so I must have been about 27.2. How old were you when you first started?
Fortran.3. What was your first programming language?
Never because I was not programming with it. I took it just so that I can go to the next Engineering class.4. How long did it take you to get a good handle of the language?
Since I'm a non-programmer, I never did.5. How long, after you picked you Linux, did you get involved in some open source projects?
All I did was involved in Linux User groups and stuff plus sysadmin stuff for local LUGs.
