Random facts:

I'm female, and I was born and raised in Arkansas.

I'm mostly of Scottish, Irish and English descent with a random bit of Swedish. Regrettably, I speak neither Swedish nor any form of Gaelic.

I speak (barely) conversational French and Modern Greek. If pressed, I can work out a bit of Spanish grammar, and can sing and utter a few phrases in Spanish as well as Italian, Japanese, and Hindi.

I'm fluent in English and Feline. Yes, Feline.

My personality type testing reveals that I am: INTJ, Enneagram 5. Y'know. If you're into that kind of thing.

I am looking forward to enrolling at University of the People to study for a bachelor's degree in Computer Science.

I joined this forum because:

-I have an interest in open-source operating systems and software

-I am currently using an older laptop with Vista (service pack 1 finally decided to install) and I am concerned about the security issues associated with an aging (and Microsoft made!) OS

-Oh, I am also very frugal (read: cheap) and the idea of paying an entity an outrageous sum for a product that I am not allowed to use as I see fit seems like a poor decision in terms of finance and functionality.

I have just installed Mint 13 Cinnamon 32 bit and am loving it!

I'm interested in computing in general, and am learning to program in Python (though I can't say I feel as though I've learned very much as yet).
