    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hello everyone

    My name's Fran and I'm a 24 year old guy from Barcelona. I've been using Linux since I was a teenager but, for work and study reasons, eventually switched to OS X the moment I bought a MacBook Pro almost three years ago. Luckily for me, I missed the feeling of being part of the Open Source community so here I am, switching back from the closed-minded word of Apple (in terms of software development, no intention to flame here) to the free/libre world of Ubuntu and GNU/Linux.

    It has been a while since I played with those Debian, Slackware, Gentoo and Arch distros and bearing into mind that Apple hardware is sadly not so well supported on real free software I'm giving a shot to Ubuntu, with which I had my own perks and headaches inside the GNU/Linux panorama these past years.

    I've planned a personal roadmap in order to catch up with the community and review my skills, so I'll be posting my experiences on how to make everything on my MacBook Pro 5,5 work like a charm. I've already read lots of good documentantion, but I'm willing to sum up everything specific to my model in order to learn better how my system works and, who knows, maybe help others!

    So I'm not extending myself no more. I'm happy to be here and willing to share bits and bytes of good advice and help!

    Cheers!

    Hi and a very big welcome to you Fran from all in the Forums,

    With your experience you will be a very big assest to all here.

    Have a good look around and get involved with questions and answers when you are ready.

    It's not all work 'tho - many get involved with expressing their views in the Cafe.

    Fran, make sure you are having fun during your stay with us.

    Cheers -

    Hi Curtis310,

    A very big welcome to you from all here,

    Good to see you like Ubuntu Studio -

    You will find several pages devoted to it in the NewDocs link in my signature -

    No reason that you should not enjoy Windows as well - Many here do!

    Have a good look around and most of all enjoy yourself,

    Cheers -

    Blinkin I am very happy to see another Aussie too! And yes, that was "brief" in my view. I tend to go overboard when it comes to writing things. Whenever I have an essay I go well over the minimum and sometimes do thousands of words more than necessary. I spend too much time on the computer. -.-

    And yes, I will gladly help anyone that needs it. ^.^

    What's good ya'll,
    been a fan of Ubuntu for a while yet i'm still quite noobish. My last bout of curiousity still has its effects on my comp..

    maybe it's shoddy of me but if you have a free moment and enjoy new music, particularly hip hop i dare say..
    then visit www.youtube.com/bushkillmusic
    let me know what you think. yea, yea it's probably not for you.
    I make all the instrumentals and write all those lyrics, etc.. Ubuntu needs more compatibility with music software/hardware!
    alright well peace out and thanks ubuntu staff!

    Hi bushkill,

    A very big welcome to you,

    I'm afraid you are right - your music is not quite my style - but don't let that put you off - there are hundreds of members here who are as young as you and will have similar tastes in music.

    Have a good look around and get involved - we are one big happy family here.
