Hi all,

I am new to Linux, but I have been against MS ever since I bought my first computer in the early 90s (I learned on a mainframe system when I first got into grad school). I used OS-2 for as long as I could, but finally, had to use Windows. I am just now learning the ins-and-outs of Kubuntu.

I am from the USA, but now live in southern Brazil. I am a university professor and researcher (ecology, birds, conservation) and wish I had more time to play on the computer so I could learn it faster. So, forgive me if some of my questions seem obvious to those wiser than I.

Cheers,

Jim

Welcome to the forums; never be afraid to ask silly questions - nobody here started off "wise" :)

Certainly not me. Hey wait, I'm not wise now either!
Welcome!
