Had formal COBAL training many years ago, I can't remember to much of it now a days. Always, loved computers, starting with a Commador 64, then an IBM 8088.
Now a days it is a big hobby of mine to turn old PC's into something useful, ie ( like a file server, or security cam unit. ) or just giving new life to an older PC running Mint.
Used Dos 3.0 all the way to Win 10 ( I don't really like MS )
Love Linux, used Ubuntu, Debian, Manjaro, antiX, SolydXK, and Mint
My 2 favorites are Mint and Debian so LMDE is for me.
