Hello friends of GhostBSD.

I have used Linux for more than 10 years.

Until now I tested GhostBSD only on VirtualBox and sometimes on bar metal.
Today (11.12.2019) I changed my OS from Debian to GhostBSD. I think GhostBSD is on a good way to be a stable OS.

I'm not a developer. This times are over and dates back to the late 70's and the beginning of the 80's with Odra-Algol and Fortran. Than I get lost in engineering and developing of products for the chemical and automotive industry.
I'm already retired but still eager for knowledge and would like to help a little on the GhostBSD wiki.

It is also a Thank You to Eric for his excellent work.

Best Regards from Germany
