    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Greeting fellow Ubuntu users,

    It has been a while since I jumped back into the Linux world. Back in college I played around with various distros, and in fact was a member of the local L.U.G. But Linux back then didn't play well with peripheral devices out of the box.

    Recently while out of pocket my hard drive crashed on my Laptop. Forced with bringing my system back online in a pinch, I looked at the bottom of my machine to find the handy dandy Windows 7 key had conveniently rubbed off. It came down to spending money on a fresh copy of Windows (Windows 8 wasn't a consideration at all, gross looking interface.)or pirating a user key. I made the decision to jump ship to Ubuntu 12.10 and haven't looked back.

    I look forward to increasing my familiarity and enjoying the conversations here on the forums.

    Hi Everyone,

    I installed my first version of Ubuntu (12.10) last weekend in preparation for talking to the BeagleBone my family bought me for Christmas. First Linux install in a long time. I currently code on Aix at work and before that on various flavours of Unix over the last 25 years. Previously used Red Hat and FreeBSD in the 90s and SCO Unix and Xenix before that.

    By contrast, I found the Ubuntu installation to be a very troubling experience - there was nothing for me to do. Just sat back and watched while it all happened.

    So far it seems a beautifully crafted product (challenges still to come?). It's good to be back.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm quite a newbie regarding to Linux.
    I decided to switch to Ubuntu (more precisely, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin) since I realized that I should have to change my iMac with a more recent model for having an updated system and an updated software, while all this is unnecessary with Ubuntu.
    My preferred desktop environment is Unity, since it remembers the one of Mac OSX (the launcher is quite similar to Apple dock).

    Hello there!

    I'm a Linux noob. I've installed Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 on a pair of old Athlon XP PCs that I built ages ago, both with just 512MB DDR1. Both are Wubi installs for the time being. My main reason for going with Linux was to extend the life of these machines. I may have to go with lubuntu or something like Puppy Linux for that to be practical for much more than ordinary web surfing, or bite the bullet and upgrade my hardware anyway. But I am here, using Ubuntu online, with great help from forum members squakie, DuckHook, and Bucky Ball.

    Welcome JHawk56!

    Older machines can still do a great job as file, media and print servers. You can reduce the footprint a lot by install the server version of Ubuntu, once you are more experienced with the command line.

    Good luck!

    Hi everyone! I, like many others, am a noob. Not a complete noob, but somewhat...

    Anyways, I am still currently in the process of downloading Ubuntu. A very helpful staff member is helping me.

    Thanks!
