Subject: [Cialug] new to this group, and Linux

Hello everyone,

My name is Michael Davis -- I live in Urbandale and I'm new to this
list.  I'm on the digest version for now, but I joined this list at
the suggestion of a friend because I want to install Linux on one of
my home computers.

I was (a little bit) into programming on the Commodore 64 when I was a
kid in the 80s, and want to get back into programming again.  All the
reading I have done recently indicates that my first step is to be
working in Linux, so here I am.

I'm pretty clueless at this stage.  I'm thinking of buying Linux
instead of downloading it for free, because that way I'd get some
phone support while I figure out what I'm doing.  Any thoughts?
