What’s Your Ubuntu Story? August 3, 2006

Posted by Carthik in news, ubuntu, Ubuntu Sites.

Here’s your chance to be the harbinger of hope and freedom. The Ubuntu Fridge invites us all to submit stories of why and how we use Ubuntu. If you permit them, they might even use your story to popularize Ubuntu. So go for it!

The following is from Ubuntu – mystory. Go there and read up, in case there are updates.

If you are using Ubuntu in a business, school, government department, charitable organisation or research center we would like to hear from you.
Email us at mystory@ubuntu.com and tell us how you are using Ubuntu. We are particularly keen to know the following:

* How many computers you run on Ubuntu?
* Which applications you use?
* Why you chose Ubuntu?
* Whether you have shared Ubuntu with other organisations?
* What you like about Ubuntu?
* Which country and language(s) you use Ubuntu in?

Of course the more detail the better, but even if its just a paragraph that would be great. Photos are very welcome AND please state clearly if you are happy for us to share your story!

Over the next couple of months we would like to start sharing these stories and let others hear how Ubuntu works in your lives, schools and businesses.

So don’t wait, email us at mystory@ubuntu.com.


1. Petros - August 3, 2006

Actually, I just posted a brief review of ubuntu on my Dell 700m, my main laptop for my business. Currently it’s only in use on my laptop (which I am currently using while out of town on business). But I hope to, instead of using it for my desktop and server machines (I still prefer Gentoo) pass it along to much of my family. After seeing the simplicity of the install my business partner and brother decided to rid himself of Windows 2000. I mean, it is, very very good. You can find a detailed look at it, from my point of view, on my site.

Congrats! On making it to the top blog spot. By the way, I am also a new blogger on wordpress, and wondered if you’d help with advice on how to create navigation bars on the header? Like home, about, upcoming, popular posts, etc.

Bryan, thank you very much!

The nav-bar is an advantage I get from using the Regulus theme. Some themes display the “pages” you create as element of a horizontal navigation bar.

I installed Unbuntu on my system but was not able to create a ADSL dial up connection(USB modem). I am a *nix newbie so all the instructions like recompile headers ,make etc looks like spanish to me. So at present the ubuntu is lying pretty useless in my sytem. I was planning to use it for my net usage to be free from viruses and other attacks.

The Overnight Review of Ubuntu

Ubuntu. So despite my aforementioned issues with Gentoo’s modular X update, there was a secondary reason for my foray into the Ubuntu world. I needed a Linux distribution perfect for my father, who is seriously considering switching after his ru…
