 * Kubuntu 6.06. Apache and PostgreSQL (As well as Mono XSP and MySQL and some others) for web hosting [http://www.ThoughtCommunity.com/ ThoughtCommunity.com] and [http://www.SigmaX.org SigmaX.org], and of course my most used apps would include the likes of Firefox, Amarok, GAIM, etc. Blender for 3D animation, and I make extensive use of Ardour and Audacity for audio mastering of my music. {I'm not actually in Chicago, but SW Michigan; this group is the closest though} ~ SigmaX == Joining the Team ==
Line 56: Line 33:
 * I use Gimp, Freeciv, and the openoffice apps quite frequently, they work flawlessly to say the least! The only real problem I have encountered is with my scanner and Xsane. I have a HP Photosmart 2575 all-in-one, I can print perfectly, but when I try to scan with Xsane my printer errors out. I get the BSOD on the lil 2 inch LCD, so that's what I'm workin on right now. Good news, after installing Dapper, all the trivial problems I was having in Breezy are gone!! My HP scans great now!! I have Dapper installed as my main OS on my desktop, and the only OS on my laptop. I have been finding all sorts of cool stuff like Gdesklets, its such a sweet app.This is the best distro ....no wait OS ever!!!!

 * Using Kubuntu 6.06 LTS (2 desktops & 1 Laptop), Ubuntu 6.06 LAMP (2 servers). I use everything that begins with 'K'. I also use, amaroK, Gimp, IRSSI, Kopete, Firefox, Kdevelop, Quanta, Open``Office 2, Scribus, digiKam, Xn``View, Gobby, Emacs, VMware Server & Workstation, and many more. I am on various Ubuntu/Kubuntu teams and I am always at the [https://launchpad.net/ Launchpad] fielding support questions, bug reports, and specifications. ~ RichJohnson ~
Line 60: Line 36:
 * Like most I use Firefox & Open Office for most desktop needs. I use stream tuner, stream ripper to rip MP3 from Internet radio, I use Beep Media Player, GTKpod, Amarok, Audacity, Scribus and of course the Gimp. ~ ["Greenwom"] ~ '''Subpages'''

Line 62: Line 39:
 * Using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on my Dell Inspiron 9300, everything that I normally use is working (Wireless and Bluetooth Included). I've loaded Unreal Tournament 2004, and Quake 4. Both games work without issue. It's hard for me to tell if its a bug or something that I've done wrong since I'm an inexperienced linux user. ~ Jason Czajkowski ~

 * Have Ubuntu running on 2 machines - one my workstation/server (Dell PowerEdge SC430) - used as a fileserver/jack of all trades machine. (on a side note, ask me why I had to use a hacksaw to run a decent video card) Loaded it up with memory to run VMWare and run virtual OS's for practice/studies (I do MS stuff in the workplace, but would much rather deal with Linux). FreeNX for remote access, even played some UT2004 on it as well (though I am horrible at FPS games). Laptop (Dell C640) with Ubuntu for day to day surfing and whatnot on the couch. Have a Shuttle PC setup running Knoppmyth, playing vids/music hosted on my server over NFS. Almost a terabyte of storage in total at home, with no problems of stability or dealing with licensing (YAY!). I'm a linux newbie still, but very enthusiastic about learning more about it. ~ BrianGreen2

 * Have Ubuntu installed on my workstation and on the laptop. I use it for just about all the development work I do except on chance occasions when the customer demands a m$ft deliverable. ~ Max Luebbe

 * I've installed Ubuntu on our family's two computers, replacing Windows, mainly because I wanted to end our dependance on proprietary software and the problems associated. Before Ubuntu we had begun using OSS such as Firefox, Thunderbird, OO.o, virtualdub, audacity, etc. and it was a very positive experience. After using the live CD of Hoary, to play with Ubuntu (also my first prolonged experience with Linux) and Breezy for a nearly a year, I decided to take the plunge and install on my laptop as dual-boot. A few months later, I install on my wifes desktop and show her how to use Ubuntu. I've tried a number of linux distros, but I keep coming back to Ubuntu because the suport community is so good. I think Gentoo community also has great documentation, but I'm not needing to complile all the software I use at this time. I use my computer for classwork and web development and I like the wealth of applications found in the Ubuntu repositories. I find lots of unexpected (coming from a windows world) treasures like Jack, JackRack, etc and even gedit (much more powerful than I assumed from its description). I hope to create more support for Linux in general at our school which is very Mac-centric. It's difficult because OS X, with it's posix roots, has much of the same software available to it as linux, but with it's highly polished interface, it seems very few people find it compelling to switch. ~Francisco Athens
