Hello from a new member to the forum. I've been a fan of Linux for a long time and finally decided to become more involved in the community so I've been researching this morning and found out about the AU ubuntu team and this forum.
I plan to enjoy actively participating going forward. I haven't been on IRC for years but it looks like I'll be loading up an IRC client and meeting people in the IRC channels listed on the AU team wiki.
Welcome to the forum. Don't hesitate to ask for help with your install and general intro to linux.
