Eric has been an Ubuntu user since January, 2007. His first experience with using Linux came in 1993 and his use of Slackware. Since then, he has come and gone from Linux a few times. There have always been other users on his system, or work-related needs that have kept him tied to Windows in the past. This time around, he has moved to Ubuntu nearly 100%. Windows is still around for the time being, purely for the benefit of a couple of games that refuse to run under Wine.
He has never been a member or a LoCo or formal LUG before.

I regularly spend time on the Ubuntu Forums answering any questions I can.
I have joined the MinnesotaTeam and am looking forward to meeting some more *buntu users in my area.
- I do my best to point out the great points of Ubuntu and FOSS in general to my friends via my blog.
