    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hi guys,
    I'm Steve and I'm from Ireland. Been running Lubuntu 12.04 LTS on my Dell Mini for the past few months and it's been a very positive experience for the most part. I've always been a fan of the foss philosophy so I'm happy to finally have a GNU/Linux system and to be a member of the community. Looks like there are some good people here. I've been around computers a while but I've only recently taken up programming and electronics. Aside from command-line I'm learning Python and C. Also messing about with an Arduino kit as I'm starting a degree course in Mechatronics this year (god help me!). Really looking forward to it though.

    I hope to be able to answer some questions on the forums as soon as I've a bit more experience myself. I'm here to learn, help out when I can, make some friends and have a bita fun, so feel free to give me a shout if there's anything I can do for you or you just fancy a chat. Oh yeah.. I'm mad into music and movies, I enjoy gaming (mostly Halo and Topspin 4) and HT systems. And beers of course..

    Take it easy : ]

    Hi All! I started learning Linux in 2004. After trying several flavors, a friend gave me an Ubuntu 5.04 CD, and Ubuntu has been my distro of choice ever since. After my old computer died, I stopped using Linux for a while. But as fate would have it, Microsoft Genuine Advantage has encouraged me to get back in the game. You see, I bought a new legal copy of Win7, and after about a month of usage, it started telling me that my copy was not genuine. Grrrrr. After a few attempts to straighten things out, I said the heck with it, downloaded 12.10, formatted my drive and here I am. It's GREAT to be back!

    Hi Ennead,

    It's GREAT to have you back even if you haven't been away for all that long - Welcome.

    You will find the crowd here still as friendly as ever.

    Things have changed a little with the New forums - have a look around for the changes.

    Most of all have fun and make new friends.

    Angry Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hello
    been using Ubuntu, for about 3/4 months.

    Switched from Win7 pro, Due to this desktops mis-use by the rest of the family, though they have their own !

    I was very hesitant to switch completely, due to the hardware attached. So I tried it. Found it confusing at first.
    I'm very happy with it but it's like Win95/98/WinME - in the respect it needs constant internet to fix itself.

    Well I'm off to peruse these forums, to find answers to 6/7 major niggles I currently have.

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    My first forum post... Been using Ubuntu about a year and for the the most part am quite satisfied. Started with earlier versions but updated finally to 12.04 which worked very well. However, got a new computer and switched to 12.10 and have had quite a few problems. Not crazy about how 12.04 is working. Still working through the issues the latest is with the HP printer. Hopefully someone on the forum can help with this one.

    Have a good day

    Converted to Ubuntu a while back and absolutely love it!! A few bugs with the hardware - but I guess that's the point of the forum Can not wait for the launch of Ubuntu mobile, initial reviews and videos look amazing!

    Hope to speak to more of you soon!!
