Ubuntu : I'm linux bound

Filed under
Ubuntu

I finally got Ubuntu installed. I had downloaded Ubuntu three or four times from the generic site and burnt 6 CDs of the resulting stuff but each time my computer said the CDs were corrupt and aborted the installation.

So I sent away for the free CD and today I got my own version of Linux for human beings: Ubuntu -- did I say it was free!Postage, CD & handling: free. And it was so easy to install! So my old computer sitting here to my right is now Ubuntu driven. I didn't have a pay out a brass razoo.(Did I tell you it was free?)

So I thought I'd share my first impressions:

The first offer is a video interview with Nelson Mandela about the concept and ideology of ubuntu. This of course means that video is up and running from the word go and after taking in an audio sample -- so too is video already just right.

You just click on stuff -- programs -- and they automatically install -- like the extensions do on FireFox. So I got Gimp, Totem movie player, some layout programs, Open Office...etc. Nice package of tools.

Full Post.

What is a good EPUB reader on Linux

If the habit on reading books on electronic tablets is still on its way, reading books on a computer is even rarer. It is hard enough to focus on the classics of the 16th century literature, so who needs the Facebook chat pop up sound in the background in addition? But if for some reasons you wish to open an electronic book in your computer, chances are that you will need specific software. Indeed, most editors agreed with using the EPUB format for electronic books (for "Electronic PUBlication"). Hopefully, Linux is not deprived of good programs capable of dealing with such format. In short, here is a non-exhaustive list of good EPUB readers on Linux. Read more
