    Good stuff. Registered. Hopefully this will help me to move completely away from Windows. Except for games
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".

    Should be simpler than the LPI course I took, hopefully.

    Nice! I installed Kubuntu on my machine couple days ago and I've been having some minor issues here and there. Got Win7 in a VM, and only for one specific function in M$ Outlook that I use because my school uses Exchange. Otherwise it's totally bye bye Windows for me.

    I've also started reading Linux From Scratch so that will help things along nicely. Feels GOOD to be free!
