Where do you call home? What is it like? IE: weather, scenery

Where did you go to school and what is your education level?
I went to school here in Germany, Northern Germany to be exact. I reached the equivalent as graduating from high school.
What kind of things you like doing? hobbies, travel, fishing, camping?
I enjoy all kind of history, I often go to museums and read or hear audio books in a rather large field (mystery, crime, science-fiction, fantasy...), preferably in English, but also some in German.
Why and when did you start using Linux?
Along time ago (in a galaxy far, far away) - actually, my last Windows at home was Windows 2000... Eventually, after a long period of distro-hopping, I stuck to PCLinuxOS, first for the 32-bit edition - and I haven't regretted it.
What specific equipment do currently use with PCLinuxOS?
On my desktop.
Do you feel that your use of Linux influences the reactions you receive from your computer peers or family? If so, how?
Not too much, to be honest. I've no intention any more to persuade them to another OS, even if most things are easier.
What would you like to see happen within PCLinuxOS that would make it a better place. What are your feelings?
Great idea. But honestly, I cannot think of anything that is truly lacking within PCLinuxOS.
