Just an introduction here. I've actually been a member of this list for
years, but rarely read it. I work on linux every day, five days a week,
and 7 days when I am on call, but I access my machines via a Windows box
and ssh. I've never done a linux install and know very little about
installing packages, or any of the screen readers. I'm trying to collect
info on which distro to start with. I expect I will go with arch or
debian as I have decided that I need to use the 30 to 45 minutes a day of
free time that I have, and so I purchased a Raspberry Pi as well as an
Arduino starter kit.
I figure that I might as well get my Windows box set up as a dual boot, or
consider a virtual linux box on there for fun as well. I do run cygwin on
my windows boxes just to help with certain tasks.
Nice to see a lot of familiar names still in the arena. I'll start asking
questions once I have reasonably intelligent questions to ask.
