Hello all, my real name is Barry. I work at a supermarket, and for hobbies I play guitar, read, and surf the net. I decided a couple of months ago that my little Asus Eee PC netbook could use something lighter than Win7 to chew on, so it was as good a time as any to take the Linux plunge. After trying a bunch of distros (Ubuntu family and others) I settled on Lubuntu. It flies compared to Windows or the other distros I tried, so I'm quite happy! I started with 12.10 and upgraded to 13.10 the other day, which went flawlessly.
