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!!!
