    Ok... let's go then.

    Hi, I am Stefan and I have - ehm - Ubuntu . I guess you can say, I'm kinda Linux veteran. I started tinkering with Slackware in 1996. After some break because I couldn't get anything to run, my ego got the better of me and I started again with SuSE 5.1 in October 1997. Since 1999, Linux is on my desktop and since 2000, it's pretty much my exclusive desktop system. Until now, I have been using SuSE / Opensuse all the way. I'm (among others) SuSE Certified Linux Trainer and have been leading a Linux training center for a couple of years about 10 years ago. Later I specialized on networking and security and (in my job, at least) strayed a bit from the path towards Cisco and Check Point. I even have a Microsoft Certified Professional cert somewhere in my lowest drawer - but only because my boss forced me to do this . I'm also pretty active with IP communications, and running - again among others - an Asterisk PBX at home since 2002.
    I'm still very focused, means I'm pretty good in "my" stuff but e.g. don't have much more than user-level knowledge of black magic stuff like systemd, let alone hardware... I also have only basic coding skills (besides the usual bash and Perl stuff, of course).
    Over the last few releases, I got more and more annoyed with Opensuse. Mainly details, but you know how it is... many drops make an ocean - or something like that.
    Anyways, some guy who I really respect told me to have a look at Ubuntu and as recently my trusty old Cisco PIX at home burned out and I quickly needed a firewall, I installed Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS in a VM and that's now my firewall. So far, I'm happy but - boy - do you guys have different philosophies in some areas... It's like learning the basics all over again...
    But I have "big plans". My home server is a system that has "grown organically", means there's a ton of services with the configs taken over release after release - some configs are 10+ years old from the very beginning of my home-server times... There's some major remodeling to do be done and I'm thinking, Ubuntu server as host system and them stuffing the services into different vboxes.

    Don't waste your energy trying to change opinions ... Do your thing, and don't care if they like it.

    Hi everyone!

    As XP was nearing end of life, I started to look for alternatives, and started to look into the various Linux systems, and decided on Ubuntu 12.04. I installed it as a dual boot w/xp on my Lenovo R400 laptop, and after partitioning the drive with Gparted, the install went smoothly. I have to thank a few video posters on youtube for their help, that made things much easier!

    Everything is working as it should, wireless, DVD playback, etc after some tweaking and installs of variuous packages...

    For some reason, XP shows in GRUB as Vista (said that during install as well), but boots into XP just fine.
    Mute button on the laptop doesn't work properly. It will mute, but won't unmute. Volume controls work fine, and will unmute if pressed either way.
    I'd love to turn off the touchpad....very sensitive!

    Anyway, getting more used to Ubuntu every day, and I like it so far!

    I have to say, one major reason I chose Ubuntu was the community, excellent doc, and how-to's.

    Ubuntu was not making any money with Ubuntu One and competitors are offering more free space. There are free alternatives. There is an article about this on omg Ubuntu.
