What is your favorite distribution of linux?

Ubuntu so far running under Gnome. I tried KDE's desktop environment, and still have to get used to it. I'm going to learn Solaris soon.

Do you currently use linux?

Ubuntu 8.04 FTW!

What appeals to you most about Open Source Software?

It isn't just because open source software is free; rather, bugs are fixed faster than closed-source software models (e.g., Microsoft is really slow at fixing Windows exploits). Also, open-source tends to be more innovative

Linux offers a robust, fun computing enviroment, how can we help you make better use of it?

I would love to learn more Terminal commands. I used to be an MS-DOS expert back in the 1980s, so memorizing commands and switches are my thing. Using the GUI to get things done on a computer is the easy way out. I prefer command-line OSes.

Introduction

Hi I'm Chris. I currently use Ubuntu Linux[masked]-bit. (It replaced Windows Vista on my computer) I also love open-source software like Firefox and OpenOffice. I'm not a Linux coder, I'm more of a tester and promoter of Linux.
