Hi everyone,
my name is Edward, I live in Belgium and write SF and F stories in my spare time.
I used to like Microsoft (I loved the DOS 6.22 & Word Perfect duo) but grew more and more agravated with each Windows crash so I switched to Ubuntu 8.10 & OO Writer.
One year later still no crash so I'm happy.
Still, I'd like to learn more about Ubuntu and Linux just as I did in the old days of DOS, therefore I joined the forums.
Soon as I've broused the threads I think interesting I'll post some questions.

It's a habit all writers share. Editors like it because it is non proportional and that makes it easier to confirm the writer's word count.
