So I am about to give Ubuntu Linux a go

Got my new harddrive in for my laptop since the other one took a crap on me. Downloading: Welcome - Ubuntu Linux Right now.... going to have a go at it. Heard a lot of good things about the Desktop and how much easier it is to navigate and learn so I will see and report back what I find.

Re: So I am about to give Ubuntu Linux a go

I've never heard of Ubuntu before... but we use Red Hat Enterprise at work, and it's pretty cool once you get used to it. My favorite thing about it is you can double click text to copy it, and then use the middle mouse button to paste it. I still haven't gotten used to all the keyboard commands yet though...

Re: So I am about to give Ubuntu Linux a go

I am thinking of going Linspire or fedora myself. Might make this machine my linux server...althought it might kill my .NET stuff I have locally. So, I may just wait until I can get a shuttle or something and make it a linux server and make this machine win2003 server. Still undecided.

Re: So I am about to give Ubuntu Linux a go

So, how has the change over gone thus far? I just finished installing fedora and am applying all of the updates currently. Seems to pretty decent so far...we will have to see how well I can access my NTFS partitions here shortly. We shall see I guess.
