Just a quick introduction - got Java working

Hello everybody here. My name is Andrew. I am taking a beginning Java class, and this place was recommmended to me as a good resource.

So I thought I would introduce myself: HI.

So far so good, I have Java up and running on Ubuntu Linux, and I successfully compiled my "Hello World" program. It is definitely weird that a program compiled on linux should be able to work on Windows... My wife doesn't see what the big deal is about that, but believe you me, I have had my struggles with linux - and I appreciate this cross-compatibility.

Welcome to CodeRanch, Andrew!

I hope you have fun learning Java

The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

Don't worry about your wife not getting it. She'll appreciate it once you developped the NewBigAppThatNobodyCanLiveWithout.

I agree. Here's the link:
