Juzzyyanno, I'm a 14 yr linux"user"03:10

orangeninjabut I realize I am just scratching the surface with linux.04:13
wrstJuzzy: seems to me that the more "generic" distros like arch, or even fedora that don't polish things up as well may work better in some situations if you knwo what you are doing , but ubuntu is great for those of us who aren't there yet :)11:50
Juzzyyea, i have no problem with arch11:56
Juzzyproblem with it, it's a lot of work to setup11:57
