Cool I just joined the Wild Wacky World Of Ubuntu Maverick!! Hooray! Maybe...


I finally got my USB drive to work with the Ubuntu distro! I am so glad to get over that hurdle. I know for sure there are more to follow. However the one thing I like about Linux is that it's a clean, clutter free system. It's also much more intuitive than I thought it would be. Oh there are some truly geeky aspects like accessing the gconf editor. I'd love to know who dreamed up the idea of hiding so many of these programs. I found help for it though the Ubuntu site.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GConfEditor

So now I begin my wild adventure. I hope there will be companions here along the way so I don't fall off a cliff...

Actually, GConf isn't something that most Linux geeks like (including me). I think that human-readable and editable text files are much better, while GConf is basically like the Windows registry.
