I'm an old married father of two living in Hampshire in the UK. I've been using Linux on the desktop for years and run a mix of Ubuntu desktops, laptop and server at home. Unfortunately, at work I am only able to use Ubuntu within VirtualBox.
I installed Ubuntu as I wanted a system as stable as Debian with more frequent releases. When Linux was new to me, it was fun fiddling around and working out how things worked. Installing a Linux system from scratch was a real education. More recently, having a system that is solid and stable so that it just works has been more important.
