Looking at the reply i Got, i can assure you I am not a sales man. I
simply found the site about 5 years back when i first thought about
moving my pc's over to Linux. But back then I did not feel ready to make
the move. after upgrading to windows Vista. I knew i had no choice.
seeing that the site did not change. I was not sure if there were still
actual meetings there. so i shot off an email confirming people will
actually be there if i showed up. seeing that there will be people there
to answer questions from a newbie Linux user. I plan on coming with lots
of questions and problems. about my Linux os i installed. and what os
would you all recommend for people who are new to this operating

an example question i would have asked there would have been What laptop
would be the most compatible with the most distros of linux including
freebsd opensuse fedora Debian and others.  but seeing the response from
the first e-mail i sent out. maybe i will ask this one here. so you will
get the IDEA of what I am looking to ask once i actually show up. 

:P i look forward to seeing the answers to this question
