Hello, I'm new around here. I love Linux, it's so Stable - and best of all it's free. Please reply to me, telling me what you love about Linux - or your Operating System of choice. I plan to be very active here, if I can !

Oh yeah, and one more thing, is it okay to have a link in my Signature like that? If not I will remove it immediately from my Settings tab.

wellcome geek.
i like linux as well but i dont use it.
the number one issue is the lack of support.
the good thing thoge is that all is free.
i like how it is so easy to customize linux for my needs. i like that.

here is my ranking of operating systems:
1, Win7
2, WinXP
3, Kubuntu/Ubuntu (like the KDE user interface)
4, other linux OS'es
Last: Mac OS (all of them)


whats your ranking?

Putting a link to a competing forum in your signature is not a good idea, no matter how long you've been a member. Doing so as a n00b is a quick way to get banned as a spammer.

Personally, I like Ubuntu, though not 11.04 yet-- Unity looks nice, but it breaks as soon as you start trying to customize it. And Ubuntu One is a resource hog.

This - especially when you're a new member! I'm confident you're not an automated spammer but still - it'd be in your best interest to remove the link. Just looks like you're here to drive people away to your forums otherwise.

Don't want to end on a downer though, welcome and enjoy your stay!

@berry120. Good to hear that, but you think there will be some sort of repercussions from having the link in my Signature. Even though I've removed it on my own accord?
