    Well currently, I reside in Richfield, Wisconsin; in Washington county. I'm attending my soon-to-be-finished sophomore year at Slinger High School. My future career is undecided.

    I live and work in madison, wisconsin. I went to college at UW-Oshkosh, graduated with Computer Science and a minor in German. I actually went to slinger high school, so seeing the above post was kinda odd.

    I live and work in Neenah WI. I went to college at UW-Eau Claire for mathematics and music education. I just finished my second year of teaching mathematics. I switched to Ubuntu in April and I haven't touched my Windows box since (although I have been trying to run things with Wine).

    Great to see a LoCo Team started for WI.

    I've been looking for a project to handle some of my free time. I hope a Wisconsin LoCo Team will be just the thing.

    My name is Justin Helgerson. I will be starting my junior year at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. I am an Information Systems Major with emphasis on Systems Development.

    I currently am living at my parents home which is in Sun Prairie, WI (roughly 5 minutes outside of Madison). I hope to land an internship next summer which will more than likely again bring home near the Madison area, but maybe Eau Claire will provide me with some opportunities.

    I have only been using Linux (Ubuntu is my first try at a distribution of Linux) for roughly seven months, but I have really enjoyed my experiences with it. I've gotten three of my friends to switch to Ubuntu during the seven months I have been using it as well. I currently have three computers running Ubuntu.

    I look forward to starting some projects.

    Edit: Since we have some college aged chaps, I figure this link may prove to be useful as another contact resource: http://www.facebook.com/p/Justin_Helgerson/59505429

    I am also a co-admin of the Ubuntu Facebook Group.

    Hi Y'all,
    I live in Ridgeland, WI. We retired to here in 1999. I'm a native of Georgia. Mechanical Engineer from Ga Tech in 1975. MBA from UGA in 1980. Retired in 1999.
    Our closest big town is Eau Claire. We go there for good groceries and mall shopping.
    We have 40 acres, 35 of it forest. We're loving the rural peace and quite and the people in this area are very nice. We like seeing the deer, turkeys, bears etc. go through the yard.
    I started Linux with Fedora 4 in 2005. With time and a DSL, I've downloaded and tried over 20 Distros. Ubuntu is the one I've stuck with. Still I'm trying Mandriva now, did not like PCLinuxOS though which is based on Mandriva.
    My PC is a Dell-Ubuntu E520N. My first PC with a monitor was a PC-Limited (later changed their name to Dell) with Intel 286 at 8 MHz, with 1MB of RAM and a 20 MB hard drive. Prior to that I had a Commodore 64, 64KB of ram, used the TV for a monitor and an external cassette tape drive to store data. I thought the students might be amused by what the past might have been like before Apple introduced a GUI.
    I've installed Linux on several other PCs. My Mom (79 yrs old) uses SuSE 10.1, just games. Our church office uses a PC I set up with FedoraCore 4 a couple of years ago. No problems yet with either. My wife uses Ubuntu. I've installed Linux on two other people's PC when I reinstalled WindowsXP for them. Spread Linux. Tell 'em about the Forums.

    Porirua, New Zealand here...... www.poriruacity.com has information
    We both grew up in different parts of Auckland, NZ, and never met. Each of us moved to the Wellington (NZ) area in the 1980s, and met in 1992 in Porirua. We've been together since.

    Just the two of us (married, no children)

    The computer scene has changed heaps in the more-years-than-I-care-to-remember that I've been using them - thank goodness that most of us don't have to mess around with punched cards or paper tapes these days!

    Hi! I live in Howards Grove, which is in Sheboygan County. I am currently finishing the IT-Network Specialist program at Lakeshore Technical College, in Cleveland, which is south of Manitowoc and north of Sheboygan. In December, I will get my associate's degree. I got introduced to Linux by Nadine Schreiter, one of the instructors at that school. During my Linux class, I gave her a bunch of Ubuntu Breezy CDs to pass out, but I still have a lot of them laying in the box they shipped in. Nowadays, she does a custom order of CDs through ShipIt. I'm not going into much detail about my Linux experience, but my current favorite major distros are Debian, Ubuntu, and Slackware.

    Hello everyone,
    I'm new here, and to Ubuntu. Actually, I haven't even loaded it on my computer yet. I'm still reading and learning. I found you all here by total accident, but am glad I did!
    I'm in Appleton, Wi (of course) and was thrilled to find a WI site, much less a forum! Thank You for being here! I'm sure I will need lots of help, since I know just enough about computers to be considered dangerous, hehehe
    I'm a home user, and all self taught, so there are probably a lot of wholes in my computer education, so please be patient with me, k? (actually my sister is the real geek, I just do what she tells me to do, and have learned a little along the way)

    So, this is where I am, I'm hoping you all can help me. Thanks sooooo much, I'm soooo glad you are here!
