Do you know where I can find a list of LUG's and find out if there is one in
the Albany, NY area?

I will try out the new version of OOo, and maybe convince the wife, but
we'll see.

that's my issue here.  Since having a baby i really dont' spend too much
time on the computer, or anything else for that matter.  As it is my xbox
360 is collecting dust (waited in line, found out we were pregnant 3 weeks
later, waste of money).  So when I do get on a computer, it usually is to
play WoW.  Don't want to buy Vista at all, so was trying to ease myself into
Linux and get off from my dependence on Windows.
