Hi all.

I've been using linux as my only operating system for going on two years.
Although my 6 yr old Compact Presario notebook has been running 8.04 flawlessly, I've decided to pass it on to my mother - it will be her first computer. So today I ordered a Dell notebook with Ubuntu 8.04 preinstalled. I went with the Dimension XPS M1530 for a good combination of power and price. Kudos to Dell for offering Linux preinstalled on notebooks and desktops.

Great forum here. I've been lurking for sometime, and finally registered today. I truly believe that opensource is the future of computing.

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but what a fantastic job the Ubuntu community has done in putting together this excellent operating system. Certainly for many it's a labor of love because they receive no monetary compensation. And Canonical, I hope they reach a point where they are making a bundle of cash.
