10 Reasons Why Iâm Done With Windows. (or why Ubuntu Linux is now ready for 
primetime!)

| 2. Ubuntu is lovely. Yep there, Iâve said it. Linux for the desktop is now a 
| great product. Not a perfect product yet, but great. How do I know? Well I 
| installed Ubuntu 10.10 on the wifeâs machine and it worked flawlessly out of 
| the box. No having to configure networks, fiddle with arcane video driver 
| settings or anything like that. It just worked. OK, there was one glitch later 
| on, where her HP inkjet printer driver was incorrectly installed (so I had to 
| hunt around on the forums to find the fix) but I said it wasnât perfect. And 
| even so it easily compares with the best that Windows has to offer in terms of 
| ease of installation. Surprised? Yeah me too. Last time I looked Ubuntu was a 
| pain. Now itâs not. âNuff said?
