Without Ubuntu, I would not know what Samba, KDE, GIMP, Gwenview, DIA, XFCE, and others even were. Ubuntu was my gateway drug to learning so much more. 15 years. I heard try Linux. Use Arch, Use Puppy, Use fav distro x. Nothing sucked me in like Ubuntu did 2 years ago. Now I can't get enough. Maybe I'm the dumb user the 1337 wanted to keep away, but here I am. Desktops, Servers, samba shares, router builds, different DE's, love them all. Live CD opened the door and Ubuntu invited me in. Thanks!
