I recently have been playing with Ubuntu and got pretty excited about the project. I even got others pulled into it with the release of 10.10 (I installed it within a week of release) This was my first experience with Linux, although I have been playing with computers since the first Apple II and Commodore 64.(better part of 30 years) I had neither myself, but taught other older kids to use them at school.. MANY moons ago. I had the Atari 400, the lesser and more "kid friendly" version of the Atari 800. At any rate, I have heard about Linux for years and years yet had never tried it on my own. I am attending college for a BS in IT currently, yet I don't claim to be a computer tech, some of that crap is FAR beyond me. Command line stuff is intimidating to me now, I like my shiny buttons. I suppose I had best get over all that if I am to actually bet my degree.
Well, there's a tiny bit of background on me. I hope to meet some of you here and learn much more about Linux. If any pros see my post here, I have been trying to convert a Windows lab at a women's center into a Linux lab and could use some help. If anyone has dealt with such, you quickly find that USER is indeed a 4 letter word and if you remove everything between the seat and the keyboard, all is well with the computers! HELP!!! Ask about the "Steel Ball Challenge!"
Thanks for the greetings, guys! I suppose I should have realized this is a global forum, I am from Birmingham, Alabama, not England. My southern accent isn't crazy thick, as they go, but I have been asked if I was a Brummie once before, in person, to my absolute astonishment. I have had the opportunity to work with some Bitts in the past, when I lived in Florida. They were very nice people.
