    Julia here with my linux story


    I have been a Mac and Windows user and had negative thoughts about Linux (as most of free things are inferior) .I came across ubuntu as part of my college project .

    I had some problems in start but with the help of linux community its all well now .

    Now i understand why pay for a thing which is available for free . I first used to think linux must be a garbage as it is a free OS . Now as I am using ubtuntu I come to know that not only it is free it comes with lot of open source stuff . And its reliability puts windows in a shame .
    Now I recommend everyone who is not gamming to get rid of M$ windows.

    Interesting news (about the french police), but I wonder if ubuntu isn't too much dangerously user-friendly and fresh/unstable for that kind of use.

    But perhaps I shouldn't pay much attention to the rants of some who have debian as a favorite and seem to think that ubuntu is some sort of treason. I guess it would hardly be the most popular distro (if it still is) if it was that unstable, even more if it's somewhat target to newbies, as they would tend to use it for a while and just give up linux or hop to another distro shortly after. I guess. Not that popularity would be necessarily owed to stability, anyway.

    However, I think it's likely that they use the LTS version and pay for support, I guess it should make things safer.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Welcome to the Forums Julia. FWIW, I think this is the best Linux support site on the web. I also contribute to the Linux.com forums, but this is far more active, and the help is really great! I use it my self, not just as a "guru", but when I have problems I need to solve and have "hit the wall". Don't feel shy about posting questions in any appropriate forum. Someone will (usually) help you find a solution to your problem.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    As one of those who came to linux by way of Ubuntu, I have stayed with Ubuntu on my main system for 2 1/2 years. Yes, I have played with a lot of live distros in the last 6 months, but it is Ubuntu that I love. Where Ubuntu lets me down, is on some really old hardware I have tried it on. On ancient hardware, I use Puppy, AntiX, Lubuntu, or whatever I can get to work with the hardware. Come to think of it, I do have a copy of Daper Drake somewhere, maybe I should dig that out and try on my old boxes.
