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.

ps: i'm really not trying to pickup a flame
