Hey there, I just joined and thought I would introduce myself. ^_^ My name
is Stephanie, and I'm a 23-year-old geek-chick in Montana. I'm a
university student currently, majoring in filmmaking (and also seriously
studying Japanese) but if all goes well this will be my last semester and
then I head out into "the real world". Heh.
I just started using Kubuntu about a month ago and I am absolutely in love
with it. My reasons for switching to Linux (from WinXP) were manyfold; I
think the biggest reason is my growing interest in and appreciation for open
source. First Firefox blew me away a few years ago, then I discovered
OpenOffice... and then I discovered, much to my dismay, all the hoops
Microsoft and Apple made me jump through just to put music onto my iPod...
this has all led me to become a fledgling open source advocate and inspired
me to give Linux a shot. I'm quite glad I did and I'm VERY happy with my
decision thus far. (Not to mention using Linux has increased my geek cred
;) What can I say, I'm quite proud of my geekiness and eager to spread my
I consider myself to be pretty good with computers but I'm certainly not a
programmer or anything so I've really come to appreciate the huge helpful
Ubuntu community and I'm eager to help and contribute in anyway I can. I'm
not sure what I can do to contribute, so hopefully this mailing list will
give me some ideas =) I look forward to meeting you all.
