    Hey, ya'll!

    Hi, I'm just stopping by to say hello from Beulah (between Opelika and Valley). I've been fiddling with linux for about 6 months and have finally settled on Ubuntu for my desktop and laptop. I started using Puppy but the pure ease has pushed me to Ubuntu. I still use Puppy on my low-end machines. I look forward to hearing from and meeting ya'll!

    If GNOME becomes too basic for you, install KDE4

    apt-get install kubuntu-desktop
    Computers are like air conditioners. They stop working properly if you open Windows.

    Thanks for the advice, but I think I'll stick with Gnome for now. I'm kinda diggin' the look and simplicity. I'm still wet behind the ears with Ubuntu, so I kinda need that right now.

    Changing window managers becomes and addiction.

    I've gone from Gnome->KDE->AwesomeWM in the past two weeks. I only hope people stop telling me to check more out. (Awesome is sweet by the way)


    Cheers, and welcome.

    I thought about jwm, lxp-icewm, or just plain icewm...the only problem is I'm still pretty green. After I get a little experience under my belt, I might give it a go, but for now, I believe Gnome's the one for me. BTW, Awesomewm looks pretty, well, awesome!

    I am a Gnome fan. I have tried the others but always come back to Gnome.

    A warm welcome to spcwingo. The tardiness of my reply is due to me being out of town the past few weeks. It's good to be back home. My avatar indicates my Xfce allegiance.

    I too like XFCE due to it's simplicity. The only reason I don't use Xubuntu is the lack of intergrated network browsing. I sure Icould accomplish this by installing Rox of some other file browser but, I'm in love with Gnome now, so...

    Does the SPC part of the name mean that there are two of us, and that the E4 mafia is now in effect?!?!
