    Back to Ubuntu:

    Hello world!
    I have been using Linux for upwards of 5 years now, It started with an old old old copy of fedora 3 I found at ollies (A local everything shop) I picked it up with the bible books for that version of the OS. I did not like it at first. It looks to... "98" so to speak. fast forward one laptop with more viruses than I could count I stumbled back into the fray of Linux when I discovered ubuntu 8.04 I actually did not start to use ubuntu until 9.04 had come out when I re-discovered my dvd in my laptop case. I slapped it into my laptop's dvd drive and almost instantly fell in love. Study hall ended too soon but I spent the next few days tinkering around in live boot. On the third day I went home and said I was going to install it. No hesitation.

    Forward a few months and I was invited by pleia2 one of the PA communities prominent members to go to a release party and I have to admit... It was AWESOME!

    Then Unity......

    I did not like unity at first... It took me two years and 5 - 6 distro's to get back to ubuntu. My laptop died a few months ago and I ended up getting a chromebook C7 to replace it. ChromeOS is nice and fast but just yesterday I switched over to a chromeOS - Chomebuntu dual boot (Set to ubuntu by default)

    A bit about me:

    I do Android app development work and am one man of a two man company formed between my father and myself. I have been activly using Linux for upwards of 4 - 5 years. Usually I am very approachable. So.....

    Nice to meet you all! -- Or re-meet you all that is.

    -Alex K.
