Vandaman just began posting in this mailing list and he is already
Chief of the Mailing List Police? I certainly consider myself a newbie
with regards to Linux and trying to get my head around C++ (OOP) is
not easy, because I began with Assembly Language, Machine Language and
Fortran. Using Linux at home, as I do, is not the same as using it at
work 40-80 hours a week, as a bunch of the wonderful people on this
mailing list do.
