    Well, I for one will be looking forward to see what becomes of this request that Martin has posted! I am slowly migrating to Linux (Ubuntu) or beginning to be “multi-OS’ed” you might say. Excited to see what happens! Go for it Martin!!

    Please do not turn Ghacks in another slashdot! I beg you! No having any linux was GOOD for Ghacks as far as I am concerned.

    Hi, I’m not sure if I fit the profile, since my English is far from perfect and I’ve been a proud but not very experienced Ubuntu user (I’ve been using it for about tree years). I’m pretty excited though because now I know I’ll be reading more Linux-related stuff here at gHacks. It’s also good to know that there are some candidates that seem to have very good qualifications. Nevertheless if for some strange reason, nobody wants to take the job, I’ll be glad to contribute to this great blog.

    Hi Martin!
    I write for Linux here
    You can find many quality articles in there, even Lifehacker featured one of my articles about GIMP.
    It’d be cool to blog about Linux at gHacks!
    I use Ubuntu and @ Dotan I use MS Office 2007 in Ubuntu!
    So yeah I’d like to put in my name!

    Good thing you didn’t mention grammar checking- there are no grammar checkers for Linux! Losers!

    Wizix I have the feeling that this is a punch in my direction ;)

    Thanks and good luck

    I posted this post to the Ubuntu mailing list. I can think of a few names there that I’d love to see writing for Ghacks.
