Hello everyone, Just wanted to post my first blog and introduce myself to everyone here. My name is Eric and I'm from Newport News, Virginia USA. I finally got the cuts to move into the Linux world and join the great helpful community. A quick background of myself is I have been touching on a keyboard since I have been 7 years old which was a old Epson computer, LOL Also I was a great Windows Fan in my begining days and thought Windows was the greatest operating system ever. Until I started to grow up and do more on a computer I came realize that Windows was not. So I've seen in first hand Linux at work and one day I decided to put in Red Hat Linux with no idea what it was or anything. All I knew was I could download it for free and it was Operating System. Well I did'nt enjoy it not because Linux Stink to me, Just because I was not ready. So I continue to use Windows and then I got very frustrated and then I decided to start look else where for a Operating System that I could enjoy using and not have to worry about all these crazy things that Windows gave me from Virus to BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!!! So I finally made a move to Apple OS and now I really enjoyed this operating system very stable and great and all I could say is I learned alot from this Operating System. So now I meet a couple of people in the forums and they told me about Ubuntu Linux, now being my past experience with Linux which was years ago. So I looked into it and finally had them send me some discs but my for Mac Mini. Now not to long ago about 4 days now, I have been running Ubuntu Linux and so far I'm loving it! Great to use the community is great and I'm really enjoying myself with this Operating System. It is amazing how big Linux has grown and how everyone and the communities out there have been into Ubuntu Linux and are enjoying it as well.So in conclusion to this all I have to say is I willing to learn, so you will notice me alot in the forums asking questions and looking for guidance in simple tasks. Because by this time next year I will like to have my skills in Ubuntu Linux better and using it with no problem. I'm happy to be here and hope to talk to you all soon.Have a great one!
