"When I came across the word 'noob' or 'newbie' I found that
most of the self claimed beginners knew more than what I would

Someone who honestly doesn't know much about computers, at least
not the technical aspect of it. Someone who will need to be taught
and explained to as if I was a little child. That's a noob! And I
am proud to be one--a real newbie. Perhaps someday I will be able
to help other people but so far I am quite happy to achieve the
simplest task ;) I was introduced to Fedora Core 3 when someone
close to me thought I should give it a try. 'Sure' I said and he
started installing it for me. I was feeling excited about trying it
out as I had heard so much about it. Even my little 6 year old boy
was using it and spoke about it with fast words and gestures. And
then I got the computer with the finished product installed, my
laptop containing the treasure... the distro I would stick with,
Fedora Core Release 3..."
