    I like XFCE on low RAM PCs.
    Good to see this thread did not die. Had a slow spell for a while.
    I'm using 7.10 right now. I was using 7.04 but I was having some problems with it.

    Hello everybody! It's been awhile since anyone has posted to the Wisconsin LoCo forum so I thought I'd better get to it.
    My name is Todd and I now live in Cambridge, WI. My wife and I and our two kids just moved here over the summer to be closer to my oldest daughter who is in the 1st grade now. After she started school we couldn't handle only seeing her twice a month. We moved from Black River Falls, but I am a graduate of the class of 1999 from Jefferson, WI.
    I have been with Ubuntu for over a year now and love every minute of it. I will never go back, my wife though, she's coming along slowly. I switched when I bought a laptop with Vista on it. I hated it, I tried going back to XP but nothing would work so I tried a couple of different live cd's and I really like Ubuntu.
    I tried Red Hat when I was in high school but it didn't stay long. We only had one pc for the whole family so you can see how that went. I've used Fedora too. I really like the Debian Family.
    I am currently going to MATC for Networking Specialist and am going to be taking my final for CCNA3 tomorrow, I can't wait. I was going to Westerntc in LaCrosse before we moved. I loved it there but I really like how much more MATC is with hands on stuff. Who wouldn't love having there own stack of 4 switches, 2 of them being layer 3, and 4 routers to play with at my leisure (for the most part). MATC also offers a lot more in the VoIP are and I've been kinda steering towards maybe wanting to that route.
    I also like to write my own web pages. I know that that isn't really programming but it's still code. Over the summer I taught myself CSS, that was fun. I've learned JavaScript in school and am learning PERL in school right now.
    Wow, this has to be my longest post ever. I better get to studying and maybe now we can get some fresh post on here. We don't have to have issues just to start a thread. l8r people!

    Welcome to the group! I recall trying out Linux a long time ago. I just remember that I was using X Windows without any kind of desktop manager. It was fun, but it was not anything like the GUI environment of Windows or Apple/Mac. Now I am using Arch and Ubuntu and enjoying the experience. So much changes on a regular basis just like the programming world.

    We have been a little quiet lately, but I am hoping that we can get things going again. It is fun to spread ideas and pass the enjoyment around.

    Welcome Todd.

    One of close friends here in Eau Claire is from Cambridge.

    Things haven't been active around here much these days. We had a nice push going about two Summers ago, but since then we have died down. If some more activity starts one of these days I am all for planning some sort of Wisconsin event.

    Maybe we can do some kind of get together in the Madison area during your winter break (if you are in town). It would be nice to see some faces and also see what people have done with their computers. We could even take a look at the alpha version of Jaunty.

    I'm still checking the forum, but I've moved down to Normal, IL for grad school. So I'm not technically in WI, but I plan on returning when I'm done

    La Crosse, WI!!!

    Started out in high school with a TRS80 Model 3 with tape drive, couldn't afford the 8inch floppy drive!

    Still have guts to make a working 8086/8088! Was a Network Specialist for the State of Arizona when I lived out there but being that I am born and raised in Wisconsin I am back as of 6 years ago.

    Been playing with linux off and on for 10 years and have switched to full linux particularly Ubuntu for just over a year now. Testing Jaunty on this new laptop since it was the only distro to install for me and on an older dying laptop I have LTS 8.04. Trying to get as many converted as I can since Ubuntu is so much more friendly than windblows... Especially that Vista version!

    Few of us from work are using Ubuntu at home and try to promote it when we can...

    Hello, I'm Anthony and I'm from Cameron which is just south of Rice Lake.

    I Graduated from HS at Eleva-Strum in 1997 and went to college at UW-Platteville studying EE. Now I work for Jack Links Beef Jerky as a corporate pilot.

    My first computer was a commodore 64 and from there I got an A500 then A1200 with a..... *80mb Hard drive*!!! It's still a sweet machine that I occasionally fire up to do some web browsing - just to prove that it's still not obsolete.

    I've been using linux as my primary OS since 2004(ish) when I installed knoppmyth on an old machine for fun. The harddrive has changed on that machine a few times, the memory upgraded, and it's now running mythbuntu, but it's still doing a great job of keeping my wifes recordings up to date on that old hardware!

    One of my main focuses lately is trying to get the evolution-mapi plugin working because my company just switched to exchange server 2007.

    Hi doudar,
    Good to see other Ubuntu-ers here in the Chibardun world! And a fellow Commodore 64 user.
    But did you finish HS in 1997 or was it 1967?
    Maybe we can get Chibardun to add Linux to their monthly how-to. At least they mention Firefox.
