Similar here.  I also offer free installs for anyone in my area who
wants to 'migrate'.  This being time-consuming is the only problem,
because it's easy enough to do when you've done it once.

Excellent!  I'm in the process of writing a list of software, primarily
for beginners, on the wiki.


If you like supporting, maybe you could email me details and screenshots
of some of the projects that I haven't got round to yet, and I'll put
them up.

Specifically, the pages are (currently) including the following info:

= Brief Intro =
A few sentences describing the project.

= Key Features =
What are the main aspects of it?

= Installation =
Is the program part of the default installation?  If not, what's the
installation name?

= Hints and Tips =
Any interesting and helpful tips for using or configuring the program?

= Other applications you may wish to look at =
Similar applications, or applications that perform complimentary tasks.

= Further Reading =
The software's website, any Ubuntu documentation about it or what it
does, along with any other documentation that's outside of the Ubuntu

At the moment it's all a bit threadbare, but I'll pad it out when time
permits.  Hope you can help.  If not, there's plenty of other ways to
make your contribution count, and you sound like one of those people who
wants to do this, which is always good news.

LOL.  Hello again!
