So I got bored and downloaded the latest version of Ubuntu 6.10 and put it on my laptop. Last time I tried to do it I had problems getting the wireless to work. Thanks to the Ubuntu Official Forums this was much easier this time around and I finally got her working right. So now I am using it. I found a guide on Digg
to help make Ubuntu as functional as windows. It helps you get programs to do things such as burn DVD's, play music and DVD's etc etc. Plus it is all possible via Ubuntu's update manager so you don't have to compile anything yourself.
So no more Windows XP on my laptop
