Another linux newbie...
I just loaded Ubuntu 10.10 onto an old laptop that had been gathering dust and am in the process of getting everything to work, so I'm sure I'll have questions as I proceed. Posts on the various user communities on the Web have been very helpful for getting over some hurdles. I've got my wireless connection running on my home network, and am doing some general housekeeping now. I'll be working on being able to get a working connection to my network printer next, which is connected using a Dlink wireless print server. Also need to do more work on getting my DVD reader up and running.
It's an opportunity to learn something new and different. First impression is that getting things set up is more hands on than Windows, but that's definitely ok.
I'm new to Linux, but have touched other flavors of Unix in the distant past for short periods of time, solaris, hpunix, etc. Talking to an IT guy where I used to work, he was telling me some experiences he'd had, he obviously liked not having to deal with virus and other issues like Windows.
