Whelp, it's been awhile since I've messed with Ubuntu (and this blog!). I just upgraded from 11.01/12.04 to 13.04 so I think I missed most of 12.04, all of 12.10, and 13.04 (with another release right around the corner, 13.10 in October). Was using a Windoze laptop and desktop for school. My desktop has been down for the count with a power issue for a long time, and I haven't had the time to mess with it. I turned in my school laptop so I had to revert back to this laptop. This Ubuntu is partially broken, but works for the most part. I've got a Surface Pro from school to use as well. Not real impressed with is so far, but it's decent for lightweight Windows usage compared to a traditional laptop.
Anyways, I thought I'd post another Ubuntu website which I thought might be helpful.
It's called n00bs on Ubuntu
