Hello! My name is Lupus, coming live from the Balkans. Onwards to my late 20s, already feeling old and rusty.

Been following the Linux world for quite a while, until one night when suddenly, my Windows decided to do the job for me and commit sudoku. 🔪+💽=🔥

So, with a sizeable loss of data, and my sanity going down the drain, I figured that this would be the perfect opportunity in time and space to join the party. Fast forward a month into the future, a botched attempt at installing the drivers for the GPU, a couple of botched attempts at installing and configuring WINE [no worries, it now works amazingly well] and there I am, figuring out the basics for how to NOT make your own life even more insane.

Here I am now, an Ubuntu user, running most of my non-Linux native games via Wine/Proton, helping the Warzone 2100 community with music and somehow managing to still be alive, meeting more and more people and making friends, so many that I can't even count them on my fingers and toes, following the FOSS news and watching closely the return of the RTS golden era.

Here's to a bright future to Linux! 🍻

After so many Intro's I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon, I'm in my mid 30's and from the UK, and have been dabbling in Linux for about 6 years. I still use Windows equally for Work (90% Windows Server Environment) Would be more Linux if I had my way!

I've generally ran Pop/Fedora and lately EndeavourOS ( they have nice wallpapers as stock ;-) ). I'm mainly a gamer and the little free time I have to relax due to family commitments I like to sit back a play a nice single player or Co-op with some mates although those mates are dropping like flies with real life time but hey that's life.

After many years of a bright future and evolving Linux community, lets hope it continues to flourish!

just registered on the forum and wanted to say Hello.
Im an oldtime gamer (started with the ZX-81 and then Commodore 64 back in the good old days) and have been playing Games for most of my life. I jumped into Linux 2 years ago and finally got rid of Windows.

Im trying to get my whole game collection running under linux which is working so far way better than expected.
