Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums and hopefully I can learn and help out other people along the way. I've been using different distros since about 2008. I recently started running ubuntu 12.04 full time on my laptop. I didn't even allow the computer to boot Windows 8 one time. Booted straight from my USB stick to the ubuntu installation, and I'm finding day to day use with ubuntu is far more enjoyable than Windows.
My main reason for running ubuntu full time is to one, free myself from Windows and two, learn as much as I can about the linux terminal and scripting. My prior use was mainly to perform work related tasks, such as Apache web hosting, data recovery, and data backup/transfers. I work in the IT field and figure knowing linux can only help me with my career.
Anyway Hello everyone, nice to meet you!
