Many of our Highlanders are Linux users and, as such, this should be an easy one.  The Highlander with the first correct response to "What did Bruno mean by the term "New Linux Explorers"?" will win a Patriot Memory Supersonic Xpress 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (PSF16GXPUSB), Total Value $15.


Important Notes:

The winner will need to provide a mailing address for the USB Flash Drive.

Highlanders are only eligible to win one contest in the SNF 10th Anniversary Celebration.  Contest winners will be contacted via PM (Private Message) to obtain the needed information.

Pogue Colonel: The what?
Private Joker: The duality of man. The Jungian thing, sir.
Pogue Colonel: Whose side are you on, son?
Private Joker: Our side, sir.
Pogue Colonel: Don't you love your country?
Private Joker: Yes, sir.
Pogue Colonel: Then how about getting with the program? Why don't you jump on the team and come on in for the big win?
Private Joker: Yes, sir.

Bruno mean by the term: New linux explorer, that new linux user just found out linux and explores what it is. Also they are new around Linux and want to learn more about linux. Want it to be simple to find out information and want to learn more about it.

no, i was agreeing with the post: bruno hated the way almost all linux users / forums / documents treat people with questions or who are new to linux. this place is unique, almost singular, in its reception of linux users and any questions they bring.
