Ack, I remember those times. Struggling to make a Windows box behave
as close to Unix as possible. I finally determined that this was a waste of
time and that it would be better to migrate to Linux exclusively for work
I could never get gnu make to function the same as it did in unix land and
this frustrated me to no end until the slackware disk arrived in the mail...
The rest is history. This is my first post so I'd like to say hello to my
Linux brothers and sisters in Ireland. The reason I subscribed to this
list was basic curiousity in the state of Linux in Ireland. My family is
planning a trip to Ireland this year (provided the budget works out)
and I hoped to learn a little about the country through osmosis here.
I'm currently the president of the Jacksonville Florida Linux User's group.
