Cool "Heisann!" from Norway

I'm a 20 year old guy from Norway (you know, the place up north in Europe, cold and so...). To all of you Americans who think Norway is the capital of Sweden: That is SOOO wrong...

Well. I stumbled accross Linux by accident, and kinda because a friend of mine noticed my hidden anger towards everything that has with "Veslemjuk" as I call them. They often go under the name "Microsoft", and they always make sure something on your computer goes to hell.

So he introduced me to Red Hat 6, which crashed my whole system and deleted 2 months of schoolwork. I kinda didn't like Red Hat after that incident, so I got back to "Veslemjuk". (Yeah, thats my word for "Microsoft"...) I didn't enjoy going back, but Red Hat scared me...

But I tried again, this time on my own. A bit uncertain about which distr. to chose, so I tried first Suse 9.1 (or something like it). It was a quite nice ride, and it did not delete any of my schoolwork. It was somewhat... slugish, but I really didn't care. I ran an OS that had nothing to do with "Veslemjuk"!

Later I tried - and I'm still trying - Ubuntu, a distr. that I think is ok. At least since I'm completly new to this "game". Linux isn't that easy to start with, you know, when you are used to do it the "Veslemjuk"-way. Easy as cake, but with a few grand flaws discovered every month...

Thats my story. And now I try to convert my friends to use Linux too, and most of them hate me already (they are in the palms of "Veslemjuk", kinda hard to convert sometimes).

I certenly have a few questions, and you are allowed to answer them if, you know, feel like it.
