I looked at Ubuntu a while ago but that was as far as I went, got cold feet.. but today, being a bit bored installed it on a pen drive to try it out .. Happy with that I went ahead and installed it on a partition of the HDD .. and re booted.. I was a bit apprehensive that I may have problems with drivers, but all went well.. It booted up fast .. very fast, less than 40 secs. What a beautiful operating system, so like OS X, fast and snappy, I was soon at home with it.. First job was to get my Kodak wifi printer working .. no problems, it found the drivers and I had printed a test page in double quick time. Moving onto likely needed software I found everything I needed.. all easy to install .. I was even happier when I discovered I could access all my documents, images and music on Windows, without migrating it.. It comes with Firefox,, but I prefer Chrome, so downloaded it and synced with my Google account .. painless. I'm probably preaching to the Linux converted .. but if you have never thought or only thought it was for geeks, think again.. it's simple and easy to try out and if you like, do as I did and keep windows until you are happy you won't use it again.. It's a bit like swimming, no use just watching.. jump in and enjoy .. In future I doubt I will ever use Windows on a new PC .. I know there are a few who use Linux/ Ubuntu .. . how do you find it, do you still use Windows or have you ditched it completely.. ?
