Ubuntu for Beginners

,----[ Quote ]
| If I you decide to go with Ubuntu you need 
| to pick which variation you want, Thereâs 
| Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu. Ubuntu 
| is probably the most common; it uses the 
| GNOME graphical user interface. Kubuntu 
| uses the KDE environment, Xubuntu uses Xfce 
| (itâs great for older computers), and 
| Edubuntu designed to be used in classrooms 
| or other education environments. They all 
| basically do the same thing, just look at 
| some screenshots and pick the one you think 
| you would enjoy using more.

| Here is a video comparing the Windows Vista 
| Aero desktop to the Ubuntu desktop with 
| Compiz enabled. Loading up your system with 
| a lot of Compiz effects can cause it to 
| slow you down if you donât have a powerful 
| machine. However, some people like to make 
| things pretty so if thatâs you then take a 
| look at this video: Windows Vista Aero vs 
| Ubuntu Compiz
| Besides the stuff you see in that video you | can also draw on your screen with fire, you 
| add rain drops to the screen, and much 
| more.

| So some people like windows. So what! I 
| personally think that it is a badly 
| designed pain in the rear end which only 
| serves as a monetary black hole for a 
| company who is trying its best to be a 
| financial singularity. I like Linux. I 
| think it is the best thing since sliced 
| bread. What was that? So what if I use 
| Gentoo. I don't care that it is not Ubuntu 
| or Redhat. Whatever floats your boat.
