Ubuntu is, in my humble opinion the easiest and best way to switch from Windows to a free/open-source operating system. In order to make your transition easier, and to help those that have started using ubuntu, this weblog features a series of articles with tips and tricks.
When I started this blog, I resolved that:
a) I will not regurgitate posts from other websites unless essential.
b) I will not write articles just because I have to write something for the day.
I want the posts on this site to maintain the highest quality and utility. That, in a sentence, has been my goal.
So who am I? I am Carthik, a graduate student, like so many others. I write here when I find something worth remembering or sharing with other other Linux users.
I look forward to trawling mailing list and forum posts (so you don’t have to), and the www to bring you little snippets of helpful information. Some of these tips may also be useful for users of other flavors of Linux, and users of the Gnome desktop.
If you have a news item, or a favourite tip or webpage that you’d like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please leave a comment here if you have any suggestions for improvement, or a kind word, or even just a random thought.
I look forward to your support. Someone requested that I put up my wishlist here, and so here it is. I know, nothing’s free… except information. My wishlist mostly has a few books – there are ones that sell for less than a dollar, and the most expensive book costs $65 or so. Any help in feeding my book addiction is welcome :)
If you wish to contribute towards my (minimal) expenses, you can send a donation to the email address email@example.com via Paypal. I wish I could add a button here, but since I don’t host this blog, I cannot add the Paypal button’s form here.
I reserve the right to remove comments that I find objectionable. This includes comments that are not relevant to the post, and comments that are posted that look like comment spam. Please don’t be offended if I delete your comments, or edit your comment to remove the url(s) in it. After all, it is my blog.
