Thank you for your email :)
I am so sorry for the late reply but my inbox is FULL of emails and the
more I read and reply, the more they come.

This is exactly what we are looking for. New to testing means the perfect
candidate to do tests :)

Passion is what we are looking for to build an empire we call it Ubuntu
GNOME. You have come to the right place ;)
Passion to Linux is what we share over here. You are not alone ;)

Thank you so much for answering my call and thanks a million for being
here. Much appreciated. Welcome Home!

There is NO such thing as a stupid nor silly question. The only
stupid/silly Qs are those which never been asked. So, PLEASE, don't ask if
you want to ask, just ask and trust me, we are a lovely family over here
and so friendly. I am sure you will love it :)

Nice to meet you, Marco :)
