Hello all,

I am new to the Ga LoCo community because I recently moved up to Atlanta, I
am excited to attend the event on Saturday and thought I ought to give some
sort of RSVP and introduce myself so that I am not just showing up
unannounced. I just graduated from college in may and now live and work in
the norcross area. Now that the unexciting details are out of the way let me
say that I am relatively new to Linux and Ubuntu in particular. I have been
using linux off and on for 2 years now I only just recently took the plunge
into Ubuntu and found that not only is the software easy to use and
semi-intuitive, the user community is absolutely amazing. I have always
considered myself relativly adept at windows and computers but when it came
to Linux I was lost in a fog and that's how I stayed for quite sometime till
I discovered Ubuntu and its user community. Now I feel that Linux is a
viable desktop environment for everyday use and I plan on transitioning from
windows to it.

So.. that was long and I'm sorry. Now a few questions:
A. I plan on bringing my laptop to install GG; Is there anything else I
ought to bring? I have no real peripherals I use other than a mouse and an
external HD.
B. Will there be some tutorial or some way I can get help with
virtualization within Ubuntu? I still need windows for some things and will
be dual booting but would love to switch to a more unified system.
C. What can I do to help? I am planning on being active in this community
and would like to give back in some small way because everyone in the
greater Ubuntu community has been so helpful to me.

I think that is all for now. I hope I haven't thoroughly bored you all.
Thank you in advance for all the help and sage advise I will be receiving
come Saturday and in the future.

John E. Kingsley
