    The first hurdle

    So, you've installed Ubuntu.  Maybe you've spent some time fiddling around with your settings.  Maybe it's starting to feel like "your" operating system.  You've got a nice drop down terminal, a solid wallpaper and theme, and you're having a grand old time.

    The Terminal

    I don't know what you all think of when you hear about Ubuntu, or I suppose in this case Linux in general; but when I heard about it the first thing that popped into my head was some guy, hunched over his box, slamming arcane commands into a terminal and accomplishing amazing things faster than I could ever hope to with my mouse!  Needless to say, I wanted to (want to) be that guy.  I love efficiency.  I love minimalism and simplicity.  If I can accomplish something without my fingers leaving the keyboard to use a mouse then I'm a happy camper.  

    The Plunge

    Ok, so, I'm incredibly new to blogging.  And by incredibly new, I mean this is my first attempt.  So show mercy and all that fun stuff.  Anyway...
    I'm writing this blog for three reasons.  First and foremost, I want to provide a sort of testimony about my switch (though not complete) from Windows to Linux.  My experience in the shift has been unquestionably amazing.  Much of that is due to the operating system itself: its quality, functionality, ease of use and speed.  Even more of this is due to the community.
