I recently installed ubuntu 6.1 and I love it. I LOVE IT. This is the best user linux distro EVER. EVER!
I’ve been using Linux for years as a sever but never been able to stomach it on the desktop. I tried Red Hat, then Fedora, and well I could not get anything else to work.
But ubuntu works! Holy cow!
The installation is a wet dream. It takes away everything I don’t care about, (Partitioning, package selection, etc) and just installs what I need.
Top things I freaked out about when installing ubuntu.
- SOUND WORKS
- Boots to a usable desktop
- Looks great
- JUST ONE CD
- wireless works!
- Firefox 2.0 installed, and WORKING
- apt-get works!
- Tutorials work!
- sudo WORKS out of the box
If you have not tried ubuntu, then for the LOVE OF GOD, try it!
