    hi there everybody!


    hi everybody,
    I'm just introducing myself.
    i'm a new linux user (ubuntu actually, might change tomorrow, I'm triyng 'em ...)

    I hope I'll get how to deal with the penguin and be active part of this community (i know it'll take time )

    by now I'm just reading docs and searching for general info, and if you have newbie tips and suggestions or tutorials or manuals, guides and anything might help me learn i'll be grateful.

    bye

    Hi there. Enjoy your time here. Tips for a newbie? If you have a local library, see if they have any books on Linux and borrow a few. Skim through those manuals, and don't worry when things go wrong - just start again

    tips:
    1.)Don't panic.As long as your computer is still running,you can repair everything you did wrong.(once it stops running and doesn't start again when you press the power button,you may start panicking)
    2.)Delete your windows partition and burn you windows boot CD,then pour the ashes with holy water.Make sure there is always at least 1 cross pointing at them.
    3.)There is no double click
    4.)Unlike windows,restarting won't solve your problem,think of something else.(unless the whole thing just freezes,but that's rare)

    that's all I can think of right now

    oh,and WELCOME

    I love panic, is warm and comforting...
    no, it's a lie
