Been using ubuntu for... 5 months now. Love it.

I would love any websites, link, info about linux, leaning linux, and just simple tricks and stuff about ubuntu/linux.

Thanks.

Yes, welcome to the forums! I am happy Ubuntu has been working well for you, since it can be a headache for others. If you ever have any questions, you should post them in the absolute beginners talk section, which I (and I know many others) constantly monitor for new posts. I would move on to the other sections, but I have found that many interesting threads are created there. if you want to just learn about Ubuntu in general, stick to the forums. Over the past 2 months, I have learned so much from reading interesting threads, helping my fellow Ubuntuans out;) and posting threads of my own.

Greetings, also to Ubuntu Forums and new fellow members, not without mentioning, permitting my membership and allowing me into your fold!

Like many others before me...I too was a 'dyed in the wool' MS OS 'sheep afraid to bleet out a complaint and switch gears and drive into uncharted territory to see what else was out there. I'd heard about Unix, Linux and Mac but was cozy comfortable and quite complacent using MS 98,Me,XP and finally even Win 7 ...that is until WGA and service pack madness came along ](*,)! Anyway...like many others I was also reluctant to take the LOF because, frankly I was unsure about what apps were available....but look at me now running Ubuntu 10.10 and surfing the web right Out Of the Box (oops ....I meant to say carton..hey..hey...my bad). and I just downloaded a Linux compatible Recording Studio complete with guitar effects plus drum machine...so Linux has my endorsement.

I will admit that the GRUB2 terminal and commands as well as the the pseudo-semi-automatic Linux OS itself as well as the user interface, will take some getting used to but that's part of it's charm...and (I think...) the secret behind what helps keep it virus free.

Anyways, as Forest Gump would say: 'that's all I got to say about that" ...for now,

Happy Computing on Ubuntu everybody!
