* I am deeply grateful for Jad for helping me out when I switched to Ubuntu a few months ago. I didn't know much about it and he taught me a lot. He also dedicated his time to solve my problems and answer any questions I had. I am indebted for him due to his kindness and selflessness and willingness to help a complete amateur just because he believed in the principles behind the Ubuntu Linux philosophy.
