Happy 5th Birthday to The Geek Stuff

TGS is 5 years old now.

To celebrate this occasion my daughter Diya thought it is appropriate to throw a birthday party to her special stuffed toy friend.

She has named her friend “Penguine”.

Of all the stuffed toys, Daddy is always proud when the girls play with Penguine.

Diya and Neha with Penguine

Linux and Open source is an ocean. There are so many things to learn and explore, it is possible to get lost. TGS will be your guide in your Linux journey, and show you the right path to take to make your Linux journey more fun and enjoyable.

Leave a comment with your birthday wishes to TGS. TGS has grown to what it is today only because of your tremendous love and support. Thank You!. I really appreciate all the support given by all the regular readers of the blog. You all have motivated TGS to grow in more ways than you know.
