Hi. I'm a new user. On several occasions in the past I have been directed to BleepingComputer by search engines for virus and software advice and have thoroughly enjoyed the results I achieved by following the advice. Thus, I decided to join.

I just recently bought my first computer, having relied primarily on work and school prior to now for all of my computer usage. Because I'm tired of dealing with viruses and with Microsoft's "we own everything computer-related" mentality, I decided to install Linux (Ubuntu 7.10: Gusty Gibbon) on my newly purchased machine. Plus, I'm happy I get to learn new things, which (I take) one has to do regularly when running Linux. In my opinion, though "plug 'n play" and the like have their appeal, I think computing should push the user to expand his/her knowledge. So far, no serious problems. That said, I'll probably be browsing the Linux & Unix forum quite regularly from now on for advice on how to improve my Linux experience.

Anyway, I'm happy to be involved in the Forum.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
