Smile Hopeful hello from antipodean newbie

Just a short note. I'm a solo consultant and I just got completely sick of the waste of money and brainspace associated with Windows so I am trying to get into Linux. I successfully loaded Ubuntu 8.10 on an old laptop (actually my wifes, she wasn't all that impressed, I also DBANed it). So far I have been excited and impressed. At the same time I am encountering many glitches. I also have to manage a lot of important professional data so i have to tread carefully. I also can't afford to have my computers down for days at a time while I try and fix something.

So anyway I am hopeful, and i must say I really love the community spirit of the linux process and the support systems I have seen so far seem to leave everything else in the dust (even though there often seems to be many answers to every problem).

Look forward to meeting you out there in the space.....
