Abandoning XP for greener pastures

This is my scary new adventure...not only learning a new OS, but getting it to function in DOS, too! I'm a medical transcriptionist and still using WP5.1 for work. It only took me a couple hours to get it all going, text abbreviator and spell checker as well. I was very pleased with myself to say the least. Ubuntu rocks! Now, onto learning how to set up a network and getting more comfortable customizing my machines.

Samba for networking. CUPS for the printing. Go get 'em.
