tail the ubuntuist
hello there im a new convert to ubuntu, i have been useing windows ever since my parents brought our fist machine home, and so several years later (more than a decade) im still useing microsoft windows and i still enjoy it, up until october 26 2011 i purchased my first mac computer which was the macbook aluminum 2008 and i gotta say i fell in love with Mac OS X since i used it but it took some getting use to though, but i kinda mastered it now :). Well heres where ubuntu stepped in, i was at work one day (hardees) and my assistant store manager said to "hey do you want my laptop?" and so i responded with "sure, is there anything wrong with it?" she had told me that the battery had shorted out and windows was corrupted, so she gave it to me the next day and i looked at it, there was nothing wrong!!! in perfect condition too so i ordered a power cord (original was lost) so it came in the mail, i powered it on and low and behold windows was corrupted (like i said before) so i grabbed my retail copy of windows and tried to reinstall it and wipe the HDD it wouldn't let me!! so i grabbed a copy of ubuntu 11.10 that my older brother used with a computer he built and didn't like/understand ubuntu so he never used it again. I pulled out the mighty CD popped it in and low and behold it booted into ubuntu, I was gleeming with joy because i got a $500-$560 laptop for free and i could sell it but i like the laptop so im going to keep it for now on, and ever since i installed ubuntu ive been hooked and i love using the terminal for my packages.
also if your wondering which laptop it is its the HP dv6 2150us core i3
