A look at Ubuntu--and at how Linux can appear to beginners

,----[ Quote ]
| One other data point to that effect: After 
| installing Linux on the Dell and Sony 
| laptops noted in the column (in addition to 
| testing an in-place upgrade from the copy 
| of Ubuntu 9.10 I'd installed on another 
| Dell last year), I took that first Dell on 
| last week's reporting trip to San 
| Francisco--then didn't boot into Windows 
| until Thursday morning. Everything you read 
| here from Monday through Wednesday of that 
| week was done in Linux. I finally switched 
| back to Windows to write my column, since 
| that required running remote editing 
| software that doesn't work (or I don't 
| know how to work--anybody have advice on 
| Citrix in Ubuntu?) in Linux.


Ubuntu Fun

| So I also installed the Ubuntu Netbook 
| Remix on the Toshiba Netbook we have. Used 
| Wubi as before. It was very slow (10+ 
| minutes) on bootup however. Luckily the 
| internet is full of information and a few 
| minutes of googling produced this forum 
| thread that had me change a setting in the 
| BIOS. Now it boots quickly. There's another 
| page on How-To Geek about doing this install.


A Sleek & Easy Way To Administer Ubuntu â Ubuntu Control Center

,----[ Quote ]
| As you know, Ubuntu and Linux are hugely 
| configurable. Find some spare time and you 
| can customize anything starting from the 
| boot up messages to the gradients used on 
| the buttons and the scroll bars. While one 
| might not attempt such extreme feats very 
| often, administration and configuration are 
| standard tasks that you might perform every 
| now and then.



Five Usability Improvements in Ubuntu 10.04

,----[ Quote ]
| While no operating system is perfectly
| intuitive, Ubuntu gives its competitors a
| good run when it comes to usability.
| Other Linux distributions, and proprietary
| operating systems, certainly do some
| things better than Ubuntu.  But all in
| all, Iâm impressed with the attention to
| user-friendliness evident in Lucid.


Ubuntu 10.04 LTS: Lucid Lynx Benchmarked And Reviewed

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 10.04 LTS comes with a video editor
| pre-installed--a widely perceived weak
| point in desktop Linux distributions.
| PiTiVi is probably the best choice to
| bundle with Ubuntu. It is one of the
| easiest-to-use video editors out there,
| yet still robust enough to keep most users
| from seeking an upgrade. Throw in the best
| GTK conformity, and PiTiVi is the obvious
| choice for Ubuntu. With a minimalist
| interface and a focus on drag-and-drop
| interaction, this app finally brings Linux
| users a video editor that can seriously
| compete with Windows Movie Maker for user-
| friendliness.
