About Me

这是一个有关Linux视频教程的部落格。我将在此与大家分享经验与所学。请多多赐教。 This is mainly a Video Tutorial Blog about Linux. I am here to share my learnings and experiences. May I invite you to join me in this Quest. It all started with Linux Mint 11 and my move from the dark-side to freedom. Also a move to share experiences, knowledge and community spirit. I started to share my new found knowledge and experience in various different forums - Linux Mint Community, TomatoUSB and places I chance upon when googling. As my journey and voyages become more disperse and frequent, I decided its time for a place and certain ways to tie things together. Thus, the birth of my blog "Guruwannabe" - my user-name at Linux Mint Community, the first place that I became serious about my cyber-presence. Bob Wong (黄昌文)
