i am using Ubuntu for just 3 - 4 months only, earlier for past 10
years windows only.
though i have heard about linux in the last 3 to 4 years - havent seen
anyone using linux. I was working for a company (in the power
division) where they sell IBM, SUN, HP, and Lenovo. But even at
office (where at bangalore around 200 people used to work), havent
seen anyone using linux. every system will be preinstalled with XP. I
have seen our support engineers using Solaris 10 (Sun support).
Why I am telliing all these, I dont think we can blame anyone - for
not seeing Linux.
Though I am fully satisfied with Ubuntu, I could not install them at
my office, where my HO people are shouting - since they cannot support
for Ubuntu. I have installed 9.04 & 9.10 in my own laptop.
I know there is a LUG in chennai, and if organisation like that gives
us more about customising & others for Ubuntu, we shall help more
people, outside this Linux group. I know you all are very very good
in linux. whereas we do not know more than just customising. I do
not blame you all at all ....
Instead, on saturdays & sundays, IF POSSIBLE, can anyone give us
basic knowledge of customising certain aspects of Ubuntu, in chennai.
I can / others too can organise for such ones. Just meet for max. 2
to 3 hours ( No parties etc - just Gyan). we will meet informally.
I feel that people who are outside the regular Linux group (like you
all) can only lure the people who are using Windows. If you all tell
that 9.10 is better than windows XP or 7, they will say you are all
experienced and can do all that is required.
In short : give us A LITTLE MORE of what you all know. We will
evangelise for you. I know that LINUX DO NOT NEED EVANGELISTS,
May be I have barged in without qualification - in this chat.
