Cool G'day from Down-Under


New to this forum, I live in Australia. My first OS was CP/M then MSdos, DRdos, Windows, now I want to have a go at Ubuntu.
Cheers.

G'day mate, welcome to LQ. THere are a few Aussies here so you'll always have a local to talk to.

With regards to Ubuntu, read up on the LQ news reports, Ubuntu is a little on the nose lately. Many Ubuntu users have switched to Mint and Debian (I myself moved to Debian and am happy with the change).

That's nice use of wits. :-)

Anyway, my point was that I "read" the username ajaydeb. Ajay is common male name in India, and Deb is used by the people of Bengal (a state in India) in their names.

Fair dinkum! "Koalas and kangeroos can't type" ? Maybe, maybe not. Anyway No I am not Indian, Bengalese or anything like that. I was born in a country where babies are born with a bike between their legs, wear wooden shoes, grow tulips and wave to windmills. I am Australian by choice and have been so for a very long time.
Must check out some of those flamin roos though, never know just what they got in the bag.

Actually, your post quality supports your above statements.
Not many people born and brought up in India can write such
a quality English with a quality composition.

Nevertheless I stand by my statements of post 7th.

P.S. Welcome here.

Hello from Canada, I am tired of my computer locking up and being so slow. I am giving Ubuntu a try before I throw it out!

Welcome wjsmiley, may I suggest Debian. Ubuntu may just drive you back to Windows. Another advantage of Debian is it uses less overall resources than Ubuntu.

@ Ajay, good to see the bike was not a permanent fixture

I do!

Koalas, thats what happens when someone likes the idea of sloths, but think 'they wiould be cooler if they were smaller, with a stupid nose and totally drug-addled'. That is NOT a joke, koalas are the wasted animals I've ever seen, its all the nasty alkaloids and toxic substances found in eucalypt leaves. BTW, they also smell pretyy bad.

Kangaroos, of course they cant type. Or text-message either for that matter. For proof, I offer 'skippy the bush kangaroo'....if skippy could type, they would have used a typewriter rather than putting up with stupid humans asking 'whats that skippy'? all the time (and if skippy could text, it would have saved a lot of hopping).

LOL, thats a fluke, the only person I've ever met called 'aj' was dutch (though that was a nickname for 'anton junior').

Probably more drugs for when the koalas get sick of eucalypt leaf highs.

Actually, I like dry and sarcastic humor, provided that the
intention is NOT to pick up a fight or to insult someone
. :-D

We had a thread here titled What are you doing now?
Heard of that?
