First I would like to introduce myself. My name is Steve Bridges (aka
I have made a 100% switch to Ubuntu on August 1st and documented the
whole personal experience on my blog (http://www.voodoostevie.net). And
currently I have been producing my podcast fully on my Acer Aspire 5720Z
using Audacity. If you care to check that out, it's a musical podcast
that has been running for almost 4 years now
(http://www.voodooradio.org). Ok enough of the introductions, in
response to this last mail posted, I will have to agree with the ugly
Acer sticker on the front. I covered it with a sticker I made by using a
picture of Tux:
And I added some side labels I took from the OpenStickers
(http://openstickers.com) as well as some other sources and put them
where the vista and other crap were:
There are a few ways to make your own stickers, there is full sheet
sticker kits that you can get. I was lucky to have a co-worker print
them out and laminate them for me so they last longer (kind of). But
there are a few places you can customize labels for laptops. There is
also free Powered by Ubuntu stickers available from System 76
There is also SkinIt.com which you can customize your own full sized
graphic for your case.
Hope this helps.
