    Re: Will be in Pinehurst this summer

    I will be moving to Pinehurst in a few months. My wife is already there. And damn does she have the worst luck with Linux. She keeps having an issue and she is about ready to give up (and I am not there to fix it).

    I have installed (X)Ubuntu on about 12 computers in the last month.

    At my current location, if we add in the Mac OSX, we have about a 50% market-share.

    I am pushing hard, just wish that these guys were having the issues while I was here to help, instead of my wife a long ways away!

    I have been using Linux since '02 when I put Mandrake on a computer to IP MASQ. ICS in Windows 98/ME sucked!
    Went full itme in 06 with Breezy. I haven't looked back. Switched quite a few people to Linux, including my parents, my wife, my wife's grandma, and gonna work on my kids when I get home. (The oldest will be 5 this summer, so they really don't know much yet) Might as well start them out on Edubuntu!

    Edit: Fixed her computer. Was an issue with the upgrade stopping part way through and not upgrading to the newest Xorg.

    Re: Welcome to the North Carolina LoCo forum!

    Greetings. I'm coming in from the High Point / Greensboro area.

    I've been using Linux for a long time but have recently switched over to Ubuntu full time. I've used Ubuntu since Breezy off and on. I've ran everything from Slackware, Debian, Arch, Gentoo, Suse and a few more I'm sure.

    Hope to catch up at the IRC chat...looks pretty empty atm.

    Hello from Winston-Salem! I've been using Ubuntu for almost 2 years and have absolutely loved it! I built my own box not quite 2 years ago and use Ubuntu exclusively on it. Best running computer I've ever used. Anyway, it's cool to see fellow Tar Heels involved with Ubuntu!

    Re: Welcome to the North Carolina LoCo forum!

    Hi All,
    I am glad to see that the North Carolina Ubuntu community is growing. I consider myself a noob in Ubuntu. Years ago I tried to enter into the Linux world with Mandrake 6.0 but I gave up due to a lot of hardward issue with a toshiba laptop that I had at that moment.

    Ubuntu had change everything to me. For new users it is very smooth to learn and thanks to communities like this it is even smoother. This sounds a little bit crazy but thanks to Microsoft I am here. I always will be in debt to them because they make me hate Vista so much that I decided to look for new ways to achieve the same things, and again, Ubuntu make this possible.

    I am very sure that a lot of new folks will prefer to switch operating systems rather that keep going with Windows.

    Well, that was a short in-sight from me.

    Greetings from Durham, NC
