    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hey everyone!

    I'm lurking in IRC all day long, I figured I'd get active in these forums!

    I'm a 29 year old Linux Support Analyst from the Metro Detroit, MI USA area. My experience with Ubuntu, or Linux in general started only a few short months ago in February 2012 when I started my job as a Support Analyst. Now I'm intoxicated by Ubuntu!

    I pursue web development and learning programming and networking in my spare time. I also have 4 kids.

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hi,

    I am a complete novice when it comes to anything that does not say microsoft. However several associates have been beating me around the ears for years telling me how much simpler my life would be if I would embrace ubuntu so I am going to give it a shot.

    Not knowing a darn thing about ubuntu other than how to spell it where do you start?

    I managed to get in installed under oracles vm box and it boots but how do i navigate to where i need to go, things like email, document editing, spreadsheets, browsing the web?

    is there a windows like front end that u can use while learning about ubuntu?

    Thanks for any help any one can offer.

    JD

    Hey JD!

    Welcome! What version of Ubuntu did you install? The current 12.04 LTS has a great user interface and comes with Firefox for web browsing, Thunderbird for your mail client, and LibreOffice for your "MS Office" needs.

    My name is nowhereman2 (nowhereman in some other places). I am very new to linux and I am trying to get the knowledge to maintain my own install. I am running 10.04 and am enjoying the OS, but still need to learn more so that my irritated friends will not have to hear me bang my head on the keyboard any longer. I also consider it to be good to expand my horizons. Sure I can fix 95% of windows problems, but I know basically nothing about linux and ubuntu.

    Anyway that is me, so rock out people.

    Vriendelike Groete, Hallo en Konichiwa!

    Hey guys

    I've created the profile a while ago but didn't want to post out right, first looked around to see what is going on and how the community is like.

    Well, here goes, my post

    I've mostly used Microsoft products in the past, but I was lucky to get some exposure to SuSe and Slackware about a good 8 or 9 years ago, and I really liked the idea of being limitless, I like the thought of creating something that suits you as a person.

    Sadly the little geek in my went underground after I started switched from (LAN/WAN field technician who worked with servers and software everyday for a ITS company) at that stage to a wireless telecommunications technician climbing radio masts etc.

    Now, a few good years later I've decided to re-kindle my love for linux and so I decided on ubuntu after recommendation from a friend, and I am glad to say that I am enjoying the the desktop edition extremely.

    Hope to make a valuable contribution at some stage, but in the mean time I just want to say thanks in advance for the giants on who's shoulders I will be building my solutions.

    Moved to the Cafe, as this isn't a support question.
