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!
