I've browsed these forums before, to see what i could expect, looking for howtos, and so on.
I now have an up and running Ubuntu installation myself (one that is going to last, anyway) so i decided this was a good moment to drop in and say hi.
So, um, Hi!
Ubuntu is pretty impressive. It's fun, too, and pretty exciting to work with. I'm quite sure it will eventually replace my daily-chores-desktop installation of Windows. Testing lots of cool programs. OSS has come a long way.
I'm currently telling all my friends to get Ubuntu and ditch Windows if they don't really need it, handing out live-cds left and right.
I'm looking forward to building a system for design and art, using only free and free-ish software. Looks like I'll have it up and running before long. Which is nice.
So I'll be hanging out here for the time being, learning stuff, asking stupid and not-so-stupid questions, and so on.
