View Full Version : Mind Blowing Experience

April 27th, 2007, 08:03 AM

Sofar I've found the whole Ubuntu experience to be a pretty mind blowing one.

I feel like I'm participating in the history of my times by using a linux distro in the same way that 16th century protestants could read their own bible written in the vernaculars instead of relying on the Catholic priesthood (microsoft et al).

I guess I'm equating the open source movement with the protestant reformation.



I'm finding this to be a deeply meaningful and elevating experience. I'd like to thank Canonical and the dedicated participants in the Ubuntu community for making this happen for ordinary blokes like me.


semper fi my friends!

Sounds fun, to say the least.

I just put an order in for Ubuntu and I'm pretty happy. Figured I'd better join the forums too in case I have any problems (and oh, I'm sure I will... ;))

Welcome to both of you. Ubuntu is an awesome system, and it has allowed me to shake the Microsoft shackles.
