Who the Hell Are You?
My name is John Morris. I’m the founder of Down To Earth Linux and am a passionate Linux enthusiast. Unfortunately, I learned almost everything I know about Linux by screwing it up and having to fix it.
I don’t want you to have the same experience. I nearly abandoned Linux several times before finally falling into its sweet embrace. I feel a lot of potential Linux users, who aren’t as stubborn as I, are unnecessarily lost during this learning period.
And thus, I took my talent for teaching, writing, and website design, and started Down To Earth Linux in early 2014.
I hope this site is helpful for you. If it is, speak up! Use the comments, social media profiles, surveys, and contact forms to share your thoughts. I’m listening.
