I have also been a member of this list for sometime. Being an ubuntu
convert for many year now (If i remember I started with Ubuntu 8.10 as my
first distro that I moved to permanently.

I am an ex graphic Designer and now currently run a hosting company all
running ubuntu Gnome and Centos Machines.

I really do love the suggestions as put forward by Amaro. Its also been
difficult for me to understand all the lingo etc. Even posting on these
message boards has been very difficult for me.

Anyway Greetings to all from South Africa
