    Hi Forestpiskie! I like this thread you started. Real neat. Real eye cathcher!!
    Hi everyone. I'm Tom. Have been using Ubuntu since August 2008. Thanks to Forestpiskie and Paqman who helped me to get my feet wet so to speak and guided me in my adventures of installation and who have always been a great help to me when having problems. This is a great commuinty in assisting people with their problems and guiding "newbies" like myself. And I still consider myself to be a newbie due to always learning and asking. To me this is a very good flavor to install, learn and use.
    Thanks to everyone in this community for their great help and for putting up with some of my off the wall questions!

    Tom

    Agree with Georgia Boy: a nice idea!

    Well, hi everyone I'm Mike. My first attempt to "switch to Linux" (over a year ago) wasn't very successful for Ubuntu 8.10 (or it was 8.04?) disliked the most of my hardware...

    This January it was different. 9.10 Karmic installed and worked more or less OK, and great help of many people here in the forums allowed me to get rid of major problems. Thanx folks!!

    Now all my household (3 comps for 3 family members) is using 10.04 beta 1... As well as all the company I work in! After getting more familiar to Ubuntu, I showed it to my colleagues - and seems I'm a good "sales agent for free stuff")))

    All that is actually awesome)))

    Hi,

    Just downloaded yesterday. Still busy reading up on tutorials and whatnot. It's a shame that technology from the matrix hasn't been invented yet; would be great if I could just thrust a sharp metal information spike into the back of my head and learn it all in a few seconds. Screw Mars!!! I want my sharp metal information spike!!!

    Oh great, an introduction thread, now I can finally fulfil my dreams of living the role of a debutante
    Anyway : I've only been using Ubuntu for 9 days now and never had any experience with Linux at all before. The last time I've been doing anything at command prompt level was at the times of CP/M (which really shows my age!). Well, the last days have been an exciting learning process, I managed to get through a few initial glitches and now everything is running so much smoother. So many years I've been regarding it as normal that computer crash at least once per day, and that good software needs to be heavy on resources. If only I would have known Ubuntu or Linux earlier !

    Greetings, I am relatively new to Linux (first dipped my toes in August of 2008 and went full in September 2009) but am a fast learner.

    I am obsessed with my birds and bad puns and white text


    [I plan to add more later]

    Hey peeps, I'm Matt, been an Ubuntu user for about 3 years at this point. I have been on these forums before, but didn't really use'em, more often than not someone has had my problem and was solved so a quick search did the trick. But I felt maybe it was time to interact with the community properly.
