    Lightbulb What Type of Ubuntu user are you?

    I find different kinds of Ubuntu users here. Want to find out how many types how many of each type are there. If there is a more accurate description of a certain type, please feel free to post such typologies. Ultimately I wish to arrive at short descriptive names for different types of Ubuntu users and build a typology of users that might be interesting/of use .

    Please take a minute and do vote / comment / Note: You can choose more than one description...

    Re: What Type of Ubuntu user are you?

    Rarely fiddle around except to tweak the desktop, windows or compiz
    To this I would add: "Rarely fiddle around except to fix broken apps or settings, or configure settings that have no GUI"

    For example: PulseAudio HowTo, setting up Samba.

    Basically, other than playing with the desktop/compiz, I only "fiddle around" if I need something to work that otherwise doesn't work.

    I only use a handful of apps, but I am always striving to tweak those apps to do more of what I want them to do. My apps:
    Evolution
    FF 3.0
    Gnucash
    OpenOffice.org
    Calculator
    F-Spot/Picassa
    GIMP
    Sticky Notes
    Stellarium

    These apps take up 99% of my productive computing time (ie, when I'm not tweaking or trying to fix something).

    I use Arch, and I use GUI for file/web browsing, games, instant messaging and a few other things. Other than that, I use the CLI (so it's about 50% GUI and 50% CLI).
    Code:
    while true; do echo -n "RiceMonster "; done

    With me it's *tweak tweak tweak tweak break oops fix learn* but there are days when I pick random things in the repos and see what they do. It's fun!

    Don't sudo rm -rf! Read the manual page: $ man command. Good luck!

    I'm a tinkerer. I try to get things done in as many different ways as I can think of. I also tend to 'dabble' with code, but to a much lesser extent.
