    It's not required. It is recommended to do so - so you can join the community that feels like family =D.

    Welcome to the forums =D!

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hah, thx. That forum font size is a bit compact for my old eyes .

    Ok... let's go then.

    Hi, I am Stefan and I have - ehm - Ubuntu . I guess you can say, I'm kinda Linux veteran. I started tinkering with Slackware in 1996. After some break because I couldn't get anything to run, my ego got the better of me and I started again with SuSE 5.1 in October 1997. Since 1999, Linux is on my desktop and since 2000, it's pretty much my exclusive desktop system. Until now, I have been using SuSE / Opensuse all the way. I'm (among others) SuSE Certified Linux Trainer and have been leading a Linux training center for a couple of years about 10 years ago. Later I specialized on networking and security and (in my job, at least) strayed a bit from the path towards Cisco and Check Point. I even have a Microsoft Certified Professional cert somewhere in my lowest drawer - but only because my boss forced me to do this . I'm also pretty active with IP communications, and running - again among others - an Asterisk PBX at home since 2002.
    I'm still very focused, means I'm pretty good in "my" stuff but e.g. don't have much more than user-level knowledge of black magic stuff like systemd, let alone hardware... I also have only basic coding skills (besides the usual bash and Perl stuff, of course).
    Over the last few releases, I got more and more annoyed with Opensuse. Mainly details, but you know how it is... many drops make an ocean - or something like that.
    Anyways, some guy who I really respect told me to have a look at Ubuntu and as recently my trusty old Cisco PIX at home burned out and I quickly needed a firewall, I installed Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS in a VM and that's now my firewall. So far, I'm happy but - boy - do you guys have different philosophies in some areas... It's like learning the basics all over again...
    But I have "big plans". My home server is a system that has "grown organically", means there's a ton of services with the configs taken over release after release - some configs are 10+ years old from the very beginning of my home-server times... There's some major remodeling to do be done and I'm thinking, Ubuntu server as host system and them stuffing the services into different vboxes.

    What else...? Right... I'm a bit of a privacy buff and I REALLY dislike Google, first and foremost because of their "don't be evil"-BS while they are the single most evil entity in the universe with all their spying on users and even non-users. Besides that, I'm ex-military and prefer communicating in "direct" language, means I say/write what I think - not more and not less. Admittedly, my language *can* sometimes be a bit "colorful" .

    Well, so far for that... Let's see what's going on here... Generally I do prefer mailing lists (and I am subscribed to ubuntu-users) but nowadays, everything must be nice and colorful and AJAX and BS, so mailing lists usually are rather sparsely frequented and one has better chances to find or get infos in a web forum. But hey - I'm not all against GUIs! I love GUIs! See my working place:



    GUIs are great...! You can open many console windows side by side!

    Hello everyone. I'm new here, been using linux in various flavours since the 90s and work using linux servers. Around 3 years ago I dropped my dual boot. I've only just come back to Ubuntu after running Linux Mint for a long while, I got a touchscreen laptop
