My 14 Days With Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| I canât believe it has been two weeks 
| already that Iâve used Ubuntu Linux 
| exclusively. If I had to sum up the 
| experience 100x100ubuntuin one word, that 
| word would be âsatisfying.â And my regular 
| readers/listeners know that I canât sum 
| anything up in one word, so I will use this 
| format to provide a complete synopsis of my 
| Ubuntu thoughts.
| [...]
| Will I continue to use Ubuntu? Absolutely, 
| as my primary laptop? Will I give up my 
| Windows PC? Not until all the support that 
| I give lies only in Linux, which 
| unfortunately wonât be any time soon.


Linux Mint 8 (Helena) Released

,----[ Quote ]
| So far I have only installed Linux Mint 8 
| on my two HP 2133 Mini-Notes - but they are 
| probably two of the most difficult systems. 
| I will add a short note here once I have it 
| installed on all of the other systems, with 
| notes and comments as necessary.
| By the way, I have already confirmed that 
| Linux Mint 8 does not have the irritating 
| 60-second delay on Logout/Reboot/Shutdown 
| (Hooray!).

| Linux Mint 8 âHelenaâ is based on Ubuntu
| 9.10 âKarmic Koalaâ and it features the
| latest versions on many applications. Linux
| 2.6.31, Gnome 2.28 and Xorg 7.4 are all
| included in Linux Mint 8 along with
| significant changes to the menu, software
| manager, update manager, and a brand new
| upload manager. As has been the case in
| recent releases, the Linux Mint artwork has
| been adjusted to give the Gnome 2.28
| desktop a beautiful look. Whatâs your
| favorite feature of Linux Mint 8?
