Today is a rainy day in most of the region – I mean, really, it rains cats and dogs here in Nis, Southern Serbia. I have left behind the sunny Sofia this morning and traveled back home (short journey with small border fuss).
The first thing I did after kissing all of my household members (cats incl.) was to look up the computer schools that provide trainings in Linux usage. Having no experience with computer schools whatsoever I decided to talk to several people in local computer stores and this brought your narrator to the VLD School. Based in the very center of the city with fancy computers and pricey course’s menues and what seems to be of outmost importance for them – the longest tradition of being the first computer school in the region.
After arranging a possible training (if some mysterious events should occur) – confirmation is pending in 10 days – the school director became curious about my personal background and strange reasons that motivated me to learn such an exotic system.
Being foolish I was honest. In my explanation of personal desires for skill building I mentioned my hopes of one day acquainting other people with Open Source software and developing my interests so far as being a possible Linux administrator. His reaction was instant and is summarized above in the title of this article but ending with the exclamation mark instead.
