PCLinuxOS Family Member Spotlight - wdt

As told to Mr Cranky Pants-YouCanToo

What is your name/username?
David Thompson. I go by wdt on the forum.

How old are you?

Are you married, single?

How about kids, grandkids (names and ages)?
Two children, and a grandchild.

Do you have pets, what is your favorite?
No pets. Well, honeybees are hardly "pets."

Are you retired, still working and if working, what do you do?
I am retired. I like to fix things as a hobby. Anti-entropic.

Where do you call home? What is it like? IE: weather, scenery
SW Ontario, Canada, a small town.

Where did you go to school and what is your education level?
Ontario. I am a high school graduate, with a little university.

What kind of things do you like doing? hobbies, travel, fishing, camping?
Computers, bees, and mechanics.

Why and when did you start using Linux?
Maybe '96-'97, after OS/2 Warp3.

What specific equipment do currently use with PCLinuxOS?
A 10 yr old box, with a 3 core AMD processor. Also, a pinebookpro, not recommended, too weak, too immature.

Do you feel that your use of Linux influences the reactions you receive from your computer peers or family? If so, how?
Since no one here uses Window$ (even if it is present on the HD), it is a non-issue. Except for ARM immaturity, Linux seems mostly trouble free. ARM, on the other hand ...

What would you like to see happen within PCLinuxOS that would make it a better place. What are your feelings?
I am pleased with the no systemd, the forum seems OK. PCLinuxOS is, after all, a minority distro.
