    Howdy from Northeast Oklahoma

    I'm sure glad to see an Oklahoma Ubuntu forum! This is great!

    Just to introduce myself, I'm in Salina, Oklahoma and have participated in the Tulsa LUG for several years. We've done several things to help people get started with Linux such as Installfests, seminars on Linux for the Tulsa Computer Society, and have had a booth several times at the monthly Tulsa computer show and handed out Linux CDs, etc. We have meetings on the last Saturday of each month at 11:00am at the Hardesty Regional Library in Tulsa.

    Myself, I've been totally Microsoft free since about 1997 and am all about freedom. I've been a big Slackware fan for many years but have several computers running Ubuntu and Kubuntu and Kubuntu has become my favorite distro.

    So. I'm extremely enthusiastic about getting Linux promoted and used!

    Down with the evil empire! Free software rules!!!

    Welcome to the group, I think we are trying to set up Skype meetings and I know we are trying to set up local meetings, and I hope in the future we could all get together a couple times a year, although I don't think this has been proposed yet.

    Just to be a prude (somewhat, anyway), shouldn't we go with OpenWengo to set up voice meetings? After all, we're suppose to be dealing with open source matters.

    I tried openwengo, it crashed on startup 1/2 the time and the times I can get it to work it sees my webcam, but one the test call the cam doesn't work, I have also tried ekiga and the sound is real choppy. Grant it I have spent nearly no time trying to fix these.

    Re: Howdy from Northeast Oklahoma

    Hello from Wewoka. I'm a newb to Ubuntu and Linux. My laptop crashed so I took the disaster of losing ALL my Windows documents, email, address, websites etc. and decided this would be an ideal time to finally make the switch. I tried dual booting 6.06 but never really got into it before giving up.

    If anyone can offer help and advice I would be grateful.

    BTW..............GO SOONERS!
