    That's what is so nice about Ubuntu/Linux, (besides how beautiful it works) lol

    That there is a whole community of people ready and willing to help anyone who needs it,
    and will often sit with them and explain things until they figure it out, regardless of how long it takes.

    and rather than just taking a windows PC into the computer store, and saying "here, can you fix this for me"?
    while never actually learning how it got fixed,

    We are given the opportunity to ask large numbers of people for help, and learn how to fix these things ourselves!

    It is a beautiful thing.

    Don't hesitate to ask questions/create threads for help,
    whatever it may be.

    But that manual is super for beginners!

    Ive been using only Ubuntu for about 8-9 months or so,
    and i just took a look at that fairly new manual the other night..
    and found myself sucked into it,
    reading about things I already knew very well,
    yet i kept reading anyway because it was so well done. lol

    Yup, that's how we all get started. In fact, when I started using Linux full time about 5 years ago, the hardware support was worse than it is now, and I found it quite easy to get up and running. Linux isn't Windows, just like Mac OS X isn't Windows, and it takes time to get used to another system, so you just gotta be patient.

    If you have questions, come and post them here, or join us in IRC (you can do that easily via the web chat on www.ubuntu-za.org), and ask us. A lot of the folks that use Ubuntu in South Africa have no internet access, and most of us have the usual limited internet access, so we have already crossed that bridge and are more than willing to help others.
