Re: Would you like to answer a few questions?
Tell as much as you’re willing about your “real” life — name, age, gender, location, family, religion, profession, education, hobbies, etc.
Academic from prominent university (humanities), 30+ years old male, married, one kid. Project leader (not IT related). Not a computer freak by any means, but a long cold, dark winter force me to have several hobbies... sort of. I am a family man, but I need time alone from time to time to rest my ears.
If there was no Internet, I would use my pc for work for a few hours, then turn it off. And, open source is not vital to me, competent software is, however it was made, whoever made it.
When and how did you become interested in computers? in Linux? in Ubuntu?
I got interested in them when they could help me as productivity tools, and for rare gaming when I was 18.
Do you use more that one operating system on your computer? If so, how many? and what are they?
Microsoft Windows for WORK, and Linux out of curiosity a few times a week. The lack of professional software force me back into Windows. Actually, this is written in a Windows session. I could easily live without Ubuntu, but I dare not remove it before I do a total reinstall of this PC... but... Never had to. Windows is running flawlessly after 4 years.
Do you use more that one computer with Ubuntu? If so, How many?
No. I have only one computer.
How long after using Ubuntu before you join the forum?
AFTER? I had to get help installing it and getting hardware working here.
Do you help others? Do others help you?
Yes. Mostly in real life.
Are you a Linux Registered member? Are you an Ubuntu Registered member?
No, why should I. It is a waste of time, utterly useless. It is a number that does not change anything.
What distros do you regularly use?
Only Ubuntu. I need more pro software, not more distros.
What software do you regularly use?
Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator.
What’s your favorite application?
And what is Your least favorite?
What made you start using Ubuntu Linux?
Just curiosity. I was bored by the Windows XP theme (which I later changed to OpusOS with StyleXP).
Have you ever introduced others to Ubuntu? And if so, how many?
No, I know no one who are interested, not even a few guys I know from computer science! I know none who need it.
What would you like to see happen with Linux in the future? with Ubuntu?
Evolve faster, faster, faster in a user centered way. Let super geeks have their own StarTrek distro.
If there was one thing you could tell all new Ubuntu users, what would it be?
Dist-Update will break your system, something!
