Re: New to Ubuntu
As a long-time Windows user, you probably assumed a bit that the way Windows does things is the only way they can be done. Linux is so incredibly different to Windows that you can safely consider yourself a "newbie".
Don't be afraid to ask specific questions here. Use Google first, though, and if you have no answer or you don't understand the answer, you can post here.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
