I've been lurking on this forum for the last week and thought I'd better introduce myself.
My name is John Paul Wonlscheid. I've been playing with Linux for over 5 years. I tend to split my time between Ubuntu MATE and Manjaro XFCE. I write articles on Linux and Open Source Software for ItsFoss.com, so I do a lot of OS and application installing.
I stumbled onto this forum via a link to Raven's Big Old Linux Engine/Tool list for Game Development. I've been thinking of making a game, so it is a treasure trove for me. I've written a number of detective stories in the past and I'm currently working to create one with Ren'Py. Maybe I'll be looking for beta testers soon.
Keep up the great work, Gardiner.
