Have another customer to move to Xubuntu next month; an old Dell peecee
My Grandfather said that most people who lack a sense of humour don't lack humour, they lack sense.
HP had a linux distro? That's surprising.
This is what I did
OLD OLD Xp machine
DELL Dimention 2350 Desktop
Linux user since January 14, 2014
I can look up things on the internet!
Is this what your referring to? https://wiki.debian.org/HP/ProLiant?...ProLiant%29%29 -- http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/s...ian/index.html
I've been very bad and so weak this month so couldn't achieve many except 4.5 more
Total now is 20.5 that I have converted myself. There is another neighbour who might install Lubuntu himself on his Mini HP. He said the only thing that is stopping him to switch is Photoshop:
I of course suggested GIMP and Inkscape. He added:I might soon in a very earnest attempt to embrace the open source community's principles again give it a try once more. The issues stopping me are programs compatibility like photoshop and other same programs. Has this been addressed? Thanks.
Tried to convince him to use GIMP. He wrote:yeah i already use gimp but it is no where as efficient as adobe.
you know i should invest more in Gimp then. however are you aware of any program that acts like lightroom? google color fx is just not enouhg!
Because I am not a Graphics Designer, so couldn't really answer that Q.
And to wrap up the chat:you know, what made curious about Linux was the philosophy behind it. in a world governed by $$$ someone somewhere thought about us who have to use windows (no apple for me).
i have tried it and i liked it but what put me off was the codes i had to enter everytime to customize the program.
then Google came and endorsed this philosophy by throw in in android system..
well i will try and install it on my mini hp and see.
see you don't need to convert me as i am already linux'd
There are many Facebook Group on the City that I live and there are 'new' groups I have joined yesterday on the area around my community. 10mins by car to reach there. I have joined and started to advertise about Linux, etc. Let's see how it goes. I hope in 1-2 months that the whole city will be aware of this project and that is exactly the point.yes great. thanks Ali. i will give it a try. it is nice talking to you neighbor! i will let you once i have installed Lubuntu
Again, if everyone who is interested about StartUbuntu to do the same on his/her area, we would achieve a huge success.
My own facebook group on my neighbourhood has 58 and growing. I am asking from those who started to use Linux to write a feedback on the other groups with +1000 - +5000 members and they're doing so already. But that is NOT enough.
I am still looking for someone who works in any media (TV, newspaper, etc). That would be great with the minimum effort. I mean to reach out to so many in less time with less efforts.
Let me gather my strength and recharge ASAP. I still feel weak so don't want to overdo it.
I love lubuntu but have concerns about its shorter support cycle, so been more interested in lxle lately. Also like Linux Lite, Mint Xfce 13, and Xubuntu 12.04. Will be interested in the new LTS Buntus this Spring, but wondering if they will leave the old XP machines even further behind regarding software support? I welcome any thoughts on that and regarding if it affects amjjawad's excellent efforts. In other words--will it be a good idea to point XP user to the newer LTS that's coming up, or older, but still supported LTS? Thanks.
