    Re: Welcome, Introduce Yourself

    I first tried RedHat7 it was too much for me so i gave up on linux for years. Then a friend suggested Ubuntu. I installed 6.10 and i was very impressed with its ease. It still was SOOO different from what i was used to in windows. Ive test drove every relese since, but i have gone to a 95% user since 9.04. currently using Ultimate Edition everyday and i do switch over to Vista to game on COD4 FTW!!

    Hey everyone, I'm Chris from Buford, GA and I've been using Ubuntu since 8.04 came out (a friend mentioned it came out, I checked it out, and have been hooked ever since). I even have my girlfriend using Ubuntu on her computer (wasn't easy to convince her to try it).

    Not sure what else to say, so...."Hi!"

    Re: Welcome, Introduce Yourself

    Hello, I moved here from Texas to Marietta, GA about two months ago! I have been using primarily Ubuntu for about two years now and have used Linux for the past five years.
    Think before you type: If anybody asks you to type anything with rm -rf on the CLI, DO NOT do it! As a matter of fact, if you don't know what a set of commands will do, ask for clarification from other members.

    Re: Welcome, Introduce Yourself

    New user here. I first was introduced to Ubuntu in 2008 when one of my instructors at Atlanta tech turned me on to it. I found it interesting, but didn't think about it again until my last year at Chattahooche Tech. I recently decided to start using Ubuntu as the OS for the machines I rescue and rebuild from the Goodwill. I currently have one Ubuntu machine at home and am really excited about spreading the word about Ubuntu. I have several years experience working in marketing and promotions and would like to try my hand at putting together a sucessful campaign here in the atlanta area. If anyone wants to join me let me know.

    Hi! My name is Dennard. I'm always looking for the "next thing", and I found that in Unbuntu. I'm using an HP Pavilion that's kinda old that WAS running Windows 98. I started experimenting with ubuntu and discovered that and didn't need windows anymore. This OS is GREAT!

    Been using Ubuntu for two years now (since 7.10). Have replaced 3 Windows servers at work with Ubuntu (file, print, web). Use Ubuntu at work and home exclusively except for some necessary Windows apps.

    Yo, Penguin home boys:

    I'm Phil and I've been a computer geek since 1969. Is there anyone else out there that has written assembler code for Honeywell computers???

    I've been using Ubuntu since... well, sometime before Dapper, but I don't remember exactly... my capacitors are beginning to pop.

    I'm don't know why people use $W or $A.

    My wife uses Ubuntu. We are a Gnome household.

    I'm a terrible musician and I use audacity alot. I wish the version on Ubuntu worked as well as the version on $W and $A. The versions for Ubuntu do not allow users to slow the tempo of music without changing pitch. It is an important tool for musicians. I keep an $89 XP networed (in a closet) that I got from ginstar.com in Norcross to do taxes and audacity. I highly recommend ginstar. Good components in a local build and you don't have to buy the OS.

    I think that with the uPhone and iPad there will be a bunch of challenges for linux. I think that pretty soon the desktop as we know it will be a thing of the past (something like Hollerith cards. For you young guys, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herman_Hollerith). GET READY!
