    I am James living in Atlanta. After a week of trying I finally got my laptop all Ubuntu. Wireless works and so does my printer

    I have been using Ubuntu for 10 days.

    Re: Welcome, Introduce Yourself

    Greetings!

    I've been an Ubuntu user since pre-release 4.10 (Warty) days. Before that, just about any distro that I could successfully install<g>, mainly Red Hat, then Fedora.

    Was living in the Los Angeles area from 1986 but moved back to my home state of Georgia in late 2005. Currently resident in Woodstock.

    I'm impressed with the Feisty Beta, BTW. After a clean install this past weekend, did my first "major" upgrade (kernel, nvidia driver, etc.) last night with fear & trembling as these have tended to break X in the past. Rebooted, saw the nVidia splash, logged in, no problems. Good job!

    I'm Curtis. I've started with ubuntu on my laptop at work (July 2006). By December, it was on my laptop at home and now on my server and desktop.

    Re: Welcome, Introduce Yourself

    Hi all, I've been using Linux on and off on my desktop (Lindows/Linspire) for about 6 months and I've just brought my laptop over to Ubuntu 7.04beta ( everything working but my widescreen is flaky).

    Greetings programs:

    My name is Michael, and I'm in Perry, GA.

    As far as Linux on the desktop goes, I started out w/ Slackware in 96 or so, embraced Debian in 99, and stuck with it until around 2004? when I decided to try Gentoo. Left Gentoo as soon as I discovered Ubuntu, which was exactly what I was looking for.

    Hey Georgians! I'm in the Busy Metropolis of Gray. (about 15 miles NE of Macon)

    I started with Hoary 5.04, so that's right at two years right? Before that I had only dabbled with some live CD's (Knoppix). Since then I've progressed to building an Arch system, then come back to Ubuntu primarily running XFCE, but playing with IceWM here recently.

    I'm addicted to tweaking, 6.10 works so well (for me) I tried convincing myself that I'm not upgrading to 7.04, but deep down I know I won't be able to resist.......
