    Re: Welcome to the Forums - Introduce yourself here

    Can't think how I missed it, but I don't seem to have posted here yet. I'm Susan, a middle-aged Englishwoman with no technology background or training. I've been using computers for hobby and work for just a few years and after having learned about defragging and registry cleaning etc for Windows XP (and got pretty tired of doing it), last year I suddenly decided to learn about computers and having got a few books I got a £10 'spares or repair' desktop, got it working and then rebuilt it. (If I can do it, anyone can!) I'd bought a netbook with a Linux OS and liked it and had been playing with several Linux distros, so when the machine was running I installed Ubuntu 9.10 as the most user-friendly OS I had found and have stuck with Ubuntu since. I shifted all my work from the old windows computer without a pang of regret. When Xandros stopped supplying updates I put Ubuntu on my netbook as well.
    It is the user-friendly aspect that I like about Ubuntu, some of the other distros I tried were, to put it politely, challenging. It may not be what some of you like to hear, but basically Ubuntu is easy enough for your mum to use!

    Thanks to forum members for help and advice.

    Hey

    Correct me if i'm wrong but i can't see a welcome section.

    So being new to the forum, just thought i'd say hello

    I'm not new to Ubuntu because i had it back when it was version 3 but was always having problems with it so went back to Windows. Now with a new pc built, i thought i'd get it again only this time being 10.10 and still having Windows on partition.

    This 10.10 is soo much better from last time! Plus going from Celeron to quad core sorta help lol.

    Only have a few let downs and that's not being able to use Jetaudio as well as Windows uses it, and installing stuff through Wine is making the programs very buggy(call me a slight noob i guess).

    Still going well though and using Ubuntu more than Windows. Saying that I've used Windows once since i installed Ubuntu and that was about a month ago.

    Re: Hey

    If you want to use a lot of Windows programs I'd use 'em in Windows as you have a dual-boot and avoid the Wine headache. A few programs work brilliantly, others mediocre, many a waste of time. IMHO, of course!

    Welcome back!

    The Community Cafe has been down for a few weeks so welcome back to that, too!
