Finally I decided to delve into the wonderful world of Linux and the Raspberry Pi, and decided to write this blog to record my progress. I've been using computers for more than 25 years from way back in the good old days of MS-DOS and I've done some software development in my time. I've been on the Windows freight train from the start and have decided it's probably time to get off and have a look around at other options. Things have moved on.
Like a lot of people, the Raspberry Pi captured my imagination when I first heard about it. Could something so small and inexpensive really do so much? I was intrigued and as I looked further into it a whole new world began to open up. I'd heard of Linux before, but that was about the limit of my knowledge - it was just for running on file servers and the like, right? And so my journey began.
