    I'm an avid gamer. My current obsession is GuildWars2, and if anyone has any experience running it under Wine or PlayOnLinux, I'd love to hear about it. I've not attempted to install it yet, since I'm starting a new round of on-line classes this week, and I'm easily distracted.

    Looking forward to "meeting" new people and becoming part of a community.
    Hi John and a big welcome,

    Firstly I'd like to apologize to you for leaving you sit there for so long without a welcome,

    With your experience you should settle in here very quickly. We have quite a collection of gamers here so I trust you will feel very much at home. We are also a very friendly bunch. Ask any question at any time and also make sure you have a good look around. There are several links in my signature that may be helpful to you.

    And lastly don't forget to have fun -

    I certainly have! So far it's running just great, but the options for games is still pretty limited. Got Starcraft 2 running on wine 1.5 the other day though, and it works a treat.

    The main barrier for me last time I tried this was GFX driver support, but that seems to have improved a lot in the last year.

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hi
    I would like to introduce myself.
    My name is Peter Maddison, I am fairly new to Ubuntu, I first started with Ubuntu 11.10 when a Schoolfirend, who'd moved to USA got me interested in Ubuntu after I was explaining how much I hated the new Window$7 (I was an XP user). I tried it first on the DVD and was instantly hooked.
    I have since removed Window$ from my system and it is now a single boot system with Ubuntu 12.04LTS.
    I am so happy with it my new OS, I would like to give something back so I am giving some of my time to promote Ubuntu so, after finding out that System76 are giving away FREE stickers, I decided I would be their UK outlet. So... please contact me to find out hot to get your free stickers.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi, I joined the forums back in 2011, but I hadn't needed to turn to the forums for anything from that point until now, and taking a look around I like the community I see around here!

    I'm committed to non-hierarchical, liberatory, communitarian and democratic frameworks in all aspects of my life and FOSS gels with my left-libertarian socialism/anarchism just so. Nothing more radical than everyone getting everything for free, and open source is a massive help with the tech side of that struggle.

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hello everyone,

    I'm fairly new to Ubuntu. I've only been using Ubuntu since 2012. I started messing with my netbook as a result of stepping on it. And then I decided to start changing everything including the OS from WinXP. Although Im still learning the linux world (particularly Terminal) I'm quite happy with Ubuntu. Either way I'll probably be posting some seemingly simple questions so I hope everyone can bare with me.

    So far I've found tonnes of good information on the site!

    So I guess this is my hi to everyone

    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Hello everybody!
    I'm new to this forum, but not really new to linux/ubuntu.
    I've known linux for 4 years now (not SO long ) and I'm using ubuntu for 8 months now and since january as my one and only OS.
    I love just everything about ubuntu - the freedom, the security, the customizability and everthing else too!
    Until now, everyone from the linux community i requested help from was so nice and i hope that i will be able to return the favors others gave to me!
    greetings, PascAlucard91
