Newbie is in da house

Unread post by CidDeMizar » Sun Oct 28, 2018 9:09 pm

Hi everybody

I'm Cid and I'm embarrasing new on these matters. I used to work as a multimedia apps programmer for desktop computers on windows but I'm retired now. A few months ago I started playing emulators, basically MAME. Now, this week, I got my XU4 with OGST kit. I want to build a mini computer to play the games I used to play as a child. And, of course, I want my little son play them as well. Reading the OGST thread, I realized that I can even use again... MY BELOVED AMIGA, the first computer I used professionally. Nice days were those ones.

So, I am here, with no idea of Linux trying to begin with this "toy". Even the simpliest task is difficult for me. I have to learn many, many things... and I'm sure I'll need a lot of help.

Thanks very much, mates.

Welcome to the forum.
People are normally very friendly here, so if you encounter issues, just ask.
Everyone started with these things at some point, so there's no shame on that, and it's good that you want to learn new stuff as well :)
