After getting fed up with Windows a friend of mine suggested that I give Linux a try and recommened Ubuntu. So I did, and i'm glad. I am a fairly experienced computer user but was still daunted by the prospect of a lot of command prompts like the older versions of linux. But it was nothing like that at all! I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 as part of a dual boot system on my laptop because I still had a few applications which could only run on Windows which I needed to keep. Ubuntu even provide a Windows installer to do it for you! But only do install a dual boot system if you have enough hard drive space. Once it is installed it is ... Read the complete review

I have been a user of Linux off and on from quite early in its existence; from memory, the first distro (a common abbreviation for "distribution") I ever installed was from a Personal Computer World (RIP) cover CD in something like 1997. It was quite hair-raising in those days, with any number of opportunities to get something wrong in the installation process and end up with an unusable computer and the requirement to reformat your hard disk and start again from scratch. As time has gone on, the advent of more user-friendly versions of Linux has meant that it is now reasonably easy for people with little specialist knowledge to use it as their everyday ...

i have used ubuntu 9.10, and now the new 10.04. ubuntu is basically a completely free operating system, and offers a lot of free software available to download and use. generally this works well, but there are a few issues with drivers and programs, these can often be solved by googling the error code, and so it is fairly easy to use. the first thing that strikes me about 10.04 is the fast bootup time. i am running this on an eee pc, which is pretty low end hardware, and linux boots in around 30 seconds, which is about a third the time windows took. it is a huge graphical improvement over previous ubuntu versions, and now looks just as shiny as windows 7 to ...

This is a review for Ubuntu 9.10 the latest humorously named "Karmic Koala" release of this Linux Operating System. My first experiments with Linux were about 11 years ago with a Slackware distribution at University, and all I can say is, Boy!! Linux has come a long long way since then!!! Over a week ago I installed the 64 bit Live CD Version off a cover disk a few weeks ago and have not looked back since.. The reviewed version comes with a graphical interface, known as GNOME, which offers a user experience that's not too different to Windows XP and its successors, alternatively you can choose a different interface called "KDE" but its down to ...
