    i, too, am from the USA but my environment is filled with people who know what linux is, but basically view it as a free version of windows, and therefore something inferior, they do have a good understanding of computers, they just choose not to stray from windows
    patience is appreciated =]

    I second that. I've been using Cubase since Atari 1040, but now i'm seriously considering a switch to Ardour. I found myself in a kind of stupid situation. Although i own a retail Windows version of Cubase, with USB dongle and all, i was actually tempted to use a cracked version, because it works a lot better. Similar to my case, i suppose that more and more people will replace their expensive and buggy software ( including Windows OS ) with stable, reliable and OpenSource software.
    So, Deathray, i'd say you don't have to worry...

    Lol Death, I am from London, you are correct. Thats the beutiful thing about Internet, thank Larry Roberts, It dont matter if you were on a desert island you can still find 1000z of people with the same interest/hobbies as your self. This forum is great and although some of the people here take a lil while to understand and build a relationship with once you have you will find this forum one of the best there is IMHO. Man this is emotional, I really love you guys lmao, but seriously I`ve made some good buddys here and when it comes to networking/penetration there is not much that could not be accomplished just from this site alone. On the other hand if you feel bored and alone go where every lonesome bored man goes? titty bar/casino lol

    That isn't really a good thing.

    Think "furries".
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Kind of like the Island of Dr. Morreau except a lot more weird?

    Have you considered joining a local Linux users group?

    http://www.linux.org/groups/denmark.html

    or maybe a DEFCON group in your area or something similar?

    I'm not sure if they still hold them but I went to many a 2600 meeting in my day and have met not only some of the most intelligent people there but also some very good friends. If you're ever at DEFCON look out for someone with the handle BartEnder. He'll teach you a thing or twelve

    Hi there!
    I have the same problem, appart from the forum i have no one to ask questions or to talk about the daily things i discover...and yes there are a lot of "computer experts" wich know the ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew pretty well...not much in deed, but computer experts they claim to be...
    here in portugal the very few users wich realy use linux, they use Ubuntu but they don't do nothing like debuggin or coding, they use Ubuntu becouse they hear here or there that ubuntu is better than windows...they don't konw why or where linux beats the ruindows...but they just say things like "i'm a computer expert, since i use ubuntu"
    than i ask, hey have you tried some C easy stuff just to see gcc and gdb in action?
    and they go like "wooot" most of them don't even know what Debian is...
    this is kind of a "World sucks" post but its the very truth!!
    Ps. i'm sorry for my english, hope it's at least readable
    Reggards
