I got into Ubuntu from a guy I work with, Dave. He runs this site here. He switched over our entire network of computers at work to Ubuntu about a year ago. I *REALLY*... I mean really did not want to switch. In fact I havent all together. As the accountant I still need access to Quick Books Pro so right now I click the blue icon on my top panel to open Virtual Box up and go into Windows to run the only software I need (since it doesnt work in Wine). If it worked with Pinot Grigio Id be a happier gal!
At first I was doing the two operating systems side by side and I still got all sorts of viruses which was the main reason to switch over to Ubuntu only. I never had time to defragment the Windows system either. I was just not having any luck with Windows anymore. It continually crashed, I had to keep buying virus protection software... I think I had 3 or 4 of those going at once just to try and stop the bad guys! Ubuntu seemed to have come into its own so I said "OK, lets make the switch to Ubuntu if I could still somehow run QuickBooks." There is NO WAY IN HELL company data will ever go online. It almost feels like there is a push to do everything online these days. No thanks.
Between work and school I dont have a ton of time for games, but all of the simple fun games like Cake Mania and hidden object games I really love. I can have my fun playing, finish and be done with them! I dont play those open ended games like WoW because I know I'll get hooked!
A strong shot of espresso maybe once a week, but I mostly drink berry tea.
This is a tough one. Its either Asian food or Italian food! Is seafood a category? OK, Seafood then!
The Bourne series, The Italian Job, Under The Tuscan Sun, and Im always up for a good comedy. My most favorite movies though, and this is going to bore all of you guys... any of the English period movies. The Young Victoria, The Age of Innocence, Anna Karenina, Sense & Sensibility... I could go on!
Favorite Game of the Week:
I love hidden object games so this week its The Clockwork Man. Its a great game! I can save where I am in the game and come back to it. The new one Clockwork Man: The Hidden World looks really cool too! I dont have the new one yet, but I see its in the Ubuntu Software Center.
Well, this was fun! Come back next week... Im working on my favorite Ubuntu apps as well as my Ubuntu likes and dislikes.
