    Re: Introduce yourself

    Nick here, I live in Winter Haven and have been using K/X/Ubuntu for a few months now. I actually kicked windows out the door after about month of using ubuntu, although I do run it in Virtual Box when I absolutely need to do so. I have used all KDE Xfce and Gnome, and seem to keep jumping back and forth between the three on a weekly basis.

    Thanks!

    Hi, and thanks for the warm welcome. Please let me know how I can help!

    Yes, I am a Kubuntu user. I used KDE with Slackware previously, so I feel most comfortable with KDE. I am using Edgy though, so I need to update that. Always something to keep up with!

    I'm on my way to check out the wiki now...

    Re: Introduce yourself

    Well this looks fun and exciting so I figure I'll give it a shot .

    My name's Zac Brown, just Zac is fine though most of the time people either see me as 'rufius' or 'zbrown.' I'm 19 years old and am a student at the University of Miami. I'm double majoring in Math and Computer Science. From that you can obviously tell I'm big on computers and science lol.

    I've been using GNU/Linux for 6 years now, going on 7 in August. I started using Ubuntu during the first release, and before that I bounced around between Redhat/Fedora, Mandrake/Mandriva, and Debian. I do a fair bit of programming, mostly scientific; mainly working in C, Haskell, and Java. I've also got some experience in Python.

    I too am surgically attached to my computer, and my girlfriend gets jealous that I spend so much time with it. Often times she has to bribe me or hide my computer to get me to talk to her if I'm working on a problem .

    Howdy folks,

    My name is Patrick, I live in Orlando. I was a Ubuntu user back in the day but wandered away from it in its earlier stages because too many things didn't work for me at the time and school was pushing me to program in a Windows environment. I studied at Georgia Tech for 3 and a half years before finally failing out. I had been studying Computer Science.

    Now I live in Orlando again and work for SAK Comedy Lab in downtown. Also if you watch Orlando Magic games you might see me. I'm on the Orlando Magic Blue Crew. I'm easy to spot, I wear a cowboy hat -- Other than that I've got a few web ventures I'm working on getting off the ground, we'll see.

    I'm excited to be returning to Ubuntu. I was away for 2 years, so I think the last Ubuntu I had installed was Breezy Badger, not sure though.

    My desktop is currently set to dual boot but if I can get all my peripherals working then I am most likely going to just drop Windows all together, same goes for my Laptop.

    W00t.
