Greetings K/X/Ed/Ubuntu-ites!

I'm Scott (a/k/a angrykeyboarder).

Linux Experience

I've been a Linux user and enthusiast (on and off) since 1999. I started first with [http://web.archive.org/web/20000903125324/www.linuxmandrake.com/en/ Mandrake] (now known as [http://www.mandriva.com/ Mandriva]), then [http://www.redhat.com/ RedHat] and [http://www.suse.com/ SUSE]. Then I went on a "hiatus" for a few years came back in 2004 starting off on [http://www.fedora.redhat.com Fedora Core 3] and after that, [http://www.ubuntu.com Ubuntu] and [http://www.kubuntu.org Kubuntu] Hoary followed by Breezy and now, Dapper. I have also used [http://www.debian.org/ Debian] (both [http://www.us.debian.org/releases/unstable/ "Sid"] and [http://www.us.debian.org/releases/testing/ Etch (testing)] ) and [http://fedora.redhat.com/ Fedora Core] 4 and 5 over the past past several months (as of this writing).

That just reinforced what a great distribution Ubuntu is. Although the geek in me likes to toy around, so I'll probably end up adding something later to the mix. Regardless, I can't see myself abandoning Ubuntu/Kubuntu. There is too much going for it. Frankly one of the best things is the unbeatable community. They are great.

I'm not a coder or programmer, but I seem to be able to answer newbie questions quite well and try to help out when I can in the [http://ubuntuforums.org forums] and on the [http://lists.ubuntu.com mailing lists] etc.

As of this writing (10 May 2006) I'm running Dapper (with Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu installed). I spend most of my time in either KDE or GNOME. I can't decide which of the two I like better, so I decided not to decide. Wink ;-) Although I do lean ever-so-slightly toward KDE. I also dual-boot with Windows XP Professional because well...there are a few things that Windows still does better and I actually hold no ill will toward the OS. It's pretty good actually (shh..keep tht on the DL. It goes [http://www.forbes.com/intelligentinfrastructure/2005/06/16/linux-bsd-unix-cz_dl_0616theo.html against the grain] of a lot of Linux people)..

In any event, the geek in me likes the flexibility you get with Linux. I spent 9/10 of my computer time in Linux.

My Box

Speaking of Dual-Booting. This is the [http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=541266#post541266 box] I'm talking about.

And knowoing me, I may end up with another couple of Linux distros and FreeBSD on it as well. Besides I've got more hard drive space than I know what to do with.
