Ubuntu Edgy Headlines

Ubuntu

Take a look around the Ubuntu Forums lately and you’ll see many installation and various related threads just cropping up with problems. Not just noob problems, but people that are pretty knowledgable about linux, about how to fix things when they break, and they’re left clueless with Edgy. I am one of them. I’ve been a long time Ubuntu fan, and to some regards I still am but I surely don’t see them as Linux’s saving grace any longer. I can’t tell everyone’s story, but I can tell my own. And i hope the devs at Ubuntu are listening.

Ubuntu Edgy Upgrades a Disaster for many

I’ve now had the full version of Ubuntu’s Edy Eft (6.10) installed on my Lenovo X60s laptop for twenty four hours. I’ve been on it for about 15 of those. Here are my thoughts and feelings about the newest member of the Ubuntu family and using Edgy in both a work and play environment.

24 Hours with Ubuntu’s Edgy Eft

As of October 26, Ubuntu has released their latest Linux operating system, version 6.10 aka Edgy Eft, which can be downloaded here. Ubuntu has been the up and coming star company in the Linux O.S. scene for the last couple of years. They just seem to get more popular with each release and along with their releases getting better with each release. I would dare say they have nearly the cult following like Apple Computers or Google. Ubuntu, as you might be able to tell, is an unorthodox company, even for a company in the Linux scene!

Well the installation was truly a walk in the park. Ubuntu has streamlined their install process so much that there is only 6 steps to take from clicking “install” to rebooting into the installed desktop. No complaints on that part whatsoever.
