So how did everyone of you find Linux and then Ubuntu? What was your start in this? I remember being about 12-13 something like that, and hearing about Linux from some PC magazine, and then a forums. When I was a little older, and had been learning more about computers, I again heard about Linux, this time Ubuntu though, and thought it was pretty cool. I had got a liveCD and really liked it a lot. My family did not, and seeing as how we had only one computer at the time, we did not change from windows. (took them forever to switch from AOL to firefox mama mia. Worse web browser in this world I have ever seen.)
Was not till a bad virus made Windows unbootable did they finally switch to Ubuntu. (except my sister, she uses it, but she does not try to learn nothing with it.) It was not the half hour boot times that made them make that switch, it was just that it would not come on. After that though, they have really like Ubuntu, and the speedy way it does things, and would rather have that than windows. So I still have plenty to learn in Linux, and Ubuntu, but I have enjoyed it greatly!
