Ubuntu

I’ve been threatening to load a Linux variant on the main computer in the house for a few years now.  It is a 5-year-old Dell that was running XP.  I reloaded XP on the thing at least three times.  Every time it eventually crawled to a halt.   Windows profile corruption most likely. Finally, I am free of Windows on this machine.  I installed Ubuntu on it tonight.  Good things to come from that – like running the box for another 5 years and being able to do everything I need to on it (except listen to my DRM iTunes tunes…).

  1. I run a dual boot with win7 (on those rare times i need a windows platform.) There’s very little you can’t do with Ubuntu and do it faster. Apple is too closed of a system and Windows is too bloated anymore.

    1. I will probably install Sun’s Virtual Box or VMware on ubuntu and run a VM of windows when necessary. I considered a dual boot system but didn’t want to deal with it that much. I used to run RH before I had to share the computer with my wife. Now we have a second laptop that she uses so I was free to move forward with linux.

      I also think apples are just too expensive.
