For years I’ve been a windows guy. Just recently I setup a linux server and I had a spare PC kicking around. At house church my buddy Mixy proudly proclaimed that he installed Ubuntu, a distribution of Linux . I had an Ubuntu CD burnt from previous adventures so I thought I would give it a shot. This is really nice. There are somethings that are very convenient about the latest versions of Linux. I go to add applications, I pick a program I want to install and it goes to the Internet downloads it and installs it. It is very nice. I didn’t have to search for any drivers.

    There’s also this really handy thingy on Ubuntu that lets you post blogs without having to go to your web page!!!!! I’m finding it really nice. 😀

    Thanks for the heads up – I may look a little closer. I’m still looking for a decent linux package that can actually replace windows without a stupidly vertical learning curve. Adding applications and drivers in Mandrake worked out so unreliable I stopped even bothering to try.
