ubuntu linux

Recommended Posts

I've been testing a new distro called ubuntu linux it's based off of Debian and comes with gnome 2.8, kernel 2.6.8. They have some interesting ideas in there. It's worth a look imo.

It uses the debian installer and does an excellent job at hardware detection for the three systmes I've installed it on. it's a great way to get a nice, current, clean, install of debian. I even had my total newbie neighbor install it and it only took him 20 minutes everything was working and he's a windows user :gasp: smile just thought i'd share.

I feels fast. I have it on a p3 500 w/ 768mb of ram. It is noticibly faster than the suse 9 install and it runs real nice on my friends laptop 300mhz 512 of ram.
