    Brand new to Linux, wanted to introduce myself


    Hi all, I've just installed my first Linux system on my laptop and I LOVE IT! Started off with ubuntu 12.10 and have since upgraded to 13.4. I tried ubuntu years ago and it was a nightmare. Nothing worked right, Internet wouldn't connect, it was bad. I'm amazed at how far it has come!

    Depending on your specs, you may not have enough for Ubuntu. Try Lubuntu or Xubuntu, they work with slower processors and less ram. Enjoy your time here, and if you run into problems installing, ask for help.

    Welcome !

    I would suggest you to start a new thread in Coffee Lounge and post ur Machine's specs there. You receive a lot of suggestions over there.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
