    Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    Age: 56, apparently out of your demographic. I learned unix about 25 years ago (though I'm not 'root') but I've only had linux installed on my personal hardware for a little over a year.

    Usage? Media, writing, web use. I still have a windows 7 partition on one laptop but it's feeling neglected. I don't need photoshop or some other such program for which there's no linux equivalent.

    The only exception might be if I wanted to decrypt a dvd. There aren't any linux programs I know of that keep up with the newer decrytion standards as well as the windows ones. But I haven't needed that in a while anyway.

    Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    @Rob Sayer: what about libdvdcss2 from the medibuntu repos? Works fine for me...if you mean being able to play an encrypted dvd on ubuntu in vlc media player (also works in totem as well i believe)...
    I have also been able to copy an encrypted dvd and make an unecrypted one using K3b which has that feature when you use "copy to copy" (assuming you have added the libdvdcss2 codec to your install)...
    Or are their newer encyption standards on the newer dvds now that don't even work with that codec installed?

    I'm 43 and use it as my home operating system, teach my kids about computers and to convert friends, family, firms and acquaintances to start using alternate operating systems.
    Very rewarding when they say "And this is free?!" for the umpteenth time!

    Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    I am 24, and I use it for all my basic computer needs, which include study, work, social media. I then show it off and try to explain it to people what it is. (to some odd reactions sometimes.) Best part, it is free! second best part, it works!

    Cool Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    62 and I use Ubuntu/Xubuntu/Kubuntu for all my personal computing. Been involved with computers since the early 70's and was there when the first IBM AT and XTs were launched. Learned some programming on a ZX Spectrum and then a Commodore 64. Still have my last Commodore Amiga 2000 although have not switched it on for a long time. Dabbled with IBM OS/2 until it died off after OS/2 Warp. I do have a partition on my i7 where I have Windows 7 installed but use it only for games. Prefer RTS style games although I do have a number of FPS style games I play occasionally. Have now created myself a Ubuntu Steam account and will be seriously looking into that. Computers are still my hobby and I am still employed as a IT Support Manager for an airline here in South Africa.

    Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    I am 62 and I use Ubuntu Server 10.04.02 LTS for home networking,a LAMP server and WordPress site. I use a different distro as a desktop, plus a separate windoze computer loaded with Adobe products. Recently, I started playing with a Raspberry Pi, making fair progress for a newbie so old I have forget something in order to learn something new. Getting brave, and impatient at the time it takes to write to the Pi's SD Card, I resurrected an older, though still decent, computer and loaded Ubuntu Server.

    Using CLI's takes me back to DOS-5 and is a learning curve only slightly less frustrating than golf, but the tiniest success makes worthwhile the previous hour of hair pulling and gnashing of teeth. I have joined this forum in the hopes of receiving advice from people who, at some point, were as dense as I feel today!!
