I've been using Ubuntu since 2008, and have learned a lot from books and just using it, and, while I'm frustrated by my crappy lappy having an ATI "legacy" chip which isn't well supported by Xorg, I still love it. No questions this time, just a post.

There are only 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I started using UNIX back in the 80's, It is great to see how far you folks have taken this wonderful operating system. I enjoy using UBUNTU. Thanks for the fine forum to get questions answered.

Talking UUM: bathroom fodder

I started with UNIX in the mid-70's but it was the 80's before I got an introduction to UNIX. My Optics professor said, ''When you get done(i was doing some work for him ...) I've got UNIX here(pointing to the terminal in the lab). Feel free to use the guest account.''
That was the entire ''introduction'' :-) ... need I say working two jobs to pay for the EE major, with a GF at home leaves no time for learning by trial and error? IIRC, the session was an interesting 30-45 minutes that I never got to repeat.
Despite flirtations over the years, it was not until GNU Linux in late 90's that finally made it all work good enough to be used. Thank GOoDness Linus let his "hobby" grow and stuck with it while it did.

You would have to pay ME to use *buntu. Their advertised philosophy is great. The OS ...well, there's a spot in the bathroom to stack the rag so it could actually get the best use possible.

Question no sound

Hello I am xeon11, this is my first post ever, I just want to say that using a Linux system, is the greatest, but, I have one major problem I cannot get sound, I started with sound and now there has been none, no matter what OS is used, first I used Ubuntu, then Xubuntu, and the Fedora, and I am now back with Xubuntu, I hope to stay here. I have some info about using xfce ( Xubuntu ), and also working with ALSA, I have found a lot but I am swamped to what to do, so here am still no sound. A bit sad. I hope I haven't overdone this Post. Hope all is cool.

No it does not. You need to post outside this thread. And read post#37. Why not read before you post.

Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP - 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

I used deal with Netware as an Admin... Back in the 98, the writing was on the wall. Netware was in decline. I began looking for solid small business platforms that could replace netware for features and reliability as a server for windows clients. So began my foray into the world of Linux...
I haven't looked back...
