Haha! just found one of the first images I drew after learning how to use GIMP ten years ago after just starting to use Linux.
Interesting to see how Free Software really fosters an atmosphere of "learn it, master it, enjoy it." Before, when I used Windows, I had no incentive to learn how to use my computer other than games and browsing. With Linux, I feel that the mindset is (and always has been): "you can do anything here, as long as you're willing to learn."
And learn here is really the key; I have an understanding on what a computer is and how it works (skills which were turned necessary even for my career at one point) that I'd quite frankly never have had I not discovered Free Software.
