    Hi, I'm Michael.
    I'm a student from Sweden who's spending my time in Chicago (South Barrington) during the summers & winters working at an IT firm. I might consider spending a year going to university here as well. I'm totally in-love with the city and the people around me in Chicago.

    Re: Illinois & Chicago Shoutouts

    Hey guys!

    I'm Dakota, from the northern chicago burbs and I've been using ubuntu for awhile now (started back on 6.06). I stopped using it for awhile because me and command line never got along so I started up again back on 10.04 and been using Ubuntu on my laptop and server ever since!

    I know some things about Ubuntu and I know alot about windows and hardware. I can answer any of your windows or hardware questions! I would also like to try to learn some command line! (i'm workin on it!)

    Re: Illinois & Chicago Shoutouts

    Hello to the Illinois & Chicago Ubuntu Forums Local


    I am a long time user of other OS systems. But decided that I want to
    learn more about the data processing and the programming. I tried to find

    resources in other venues but they are all so financially demanding that it

    became a problem. So when I read about the concepts of Linux and the

    free software ideals. I though that this may be a place to fit in and learn

    the higher components.


    Due to circumstances, I sort of bounce around northern Chicago area, between
    nw Cook and se Lake Counties quite a bit, so a home is not exactly a true
    statement at the present time. I am looking for a trading relationship, where I will
    help others with their goals and desires to accomplish things, in exchange for free or
    very inexpensive resources where I can improve on my own skills.


    I have only had a machine dedicated to ubuntu up and running for a little over 48
    hours, and although I have read some things related to Linux, on the whole I am
    rather new to the whole program. So resources on how to in silly baby steps are
    appreciated.


    Michael


    ps does anyone know if they intend to begin the training section on the groups? A well
    indexed wiki book on ubuntu could help propell this system faster than anything else I

    could think of. Any system sparks and moves with numbers and education. This one
    seems to be moving but the education materials are in my so far exploration a

    bit obscure.

    Thumbs down Re: Illinois & Chicago Shoutouts

    Hey all, I am Tom, i'm in Chicago. I have been interested in, and using Unix -Linux since 2000 and I divorced windows a few years back. I use Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu server. I am looking for people in the area who share the same interests in Ubuntu and the open source community.
    Looking to start a users group or something of the sort.

    Peace.

    Re: Illinois & Chicago Shoutouts

    Howdy,

    My name is JP and I am a Pastor and a computer geek, a father of 4 in Rockford, IL. I have been working with other *nix for several years on servers etc. I had been running CentOS and KDE as a desktop but a friend told me about Ubuntu LTS and after 5 minutes I switched.

    My main draw was that many of the people I was helping in the ministry were stealing Windows product. By using Ubuntu I could offer them a solid desktop and let them free on the computer. I have used Ubuntu with several laptops and desktops and always had happy faces when they realize that they don't have to be frightened about Linux.

    My wife still clings to her Windows 7 but two of my kids have Ubuntu and one has KUbuntu on her PC as well. I am very hesitant to list myself anything other than as a beginner, however I am looking forward to getting a local group here in Rockford.

    -- JP

    BTW: CleanSweep is my Gamertag on XboxLive if you are looking for COD fodder I may be available
