I'm a literature geek, and I prefer Free/Open Source over proprietary software.

I know enough to be able to successfully interact with the shell if I have instructions, and to understand a fair amount of the jokes on xkcd.

That's about it.

I count on the friendliness of the community.

In turn you may use me as an example of an enthusiastic, if somewhat clumsy, noob who's willing to learn.
