I have upgraded my Ubuntu 10.04 to Ubuntu 10.10 beta. Chromium Web Browser was the first thing I installed in my new upgraded Ubuntu 10.10. When I finally launched Chromium, it had a small surprise in store for me. Chromium prompted me with a choice of popular search engines I could use.
I showed one of my friends Ubuntu working with full Compiz Effects and he was just amazed. After he told me that he was using Ubuntu for quite a few hours, he was setting up all he needed. However, he couldn’t set up three things: Skype, Flash Player, and Music!!
Recently I upgraded my mum from Windows XP to Ubuntu. I’m not the only one who has done the same thing. As many of you already know, even Dell now includes an option to have Ubuntu as the pre-installed operating system, rather than Windows.
A good friend of mine, who is very computer savvy, recently bought a new computer and installed Ubuntu on it rather than Windows. Now, despite being a very smart guy when it comes to PCs and Windows, he was still a newbie to the world of Ubuntu, so he and I went through a series of questions and answers before, during, and after his Ubuntu install.
I used to have some trouble while setting up my Atheros PCI card on Ubuntu Linux 9.04. It worked natively on Ubuntu 8.04, where it was detected as ath0. I upgraded from 8.04 to 8.10 whereby I noticed my wireless PCI card didn't work natively anymore. Someone suggested me to upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 Jaunty, and I did that immediately.
A few hours after setting up my new Dell Ubuntu PC, my wife jumped onto the system. You know her kind: She is an Apple Mac OS fan who uses Windows — but doesn’t really like Windows. So, how did she do with Linux?
When it comes to deploying Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope), Canonical’s installed base seems to be a loyal, eager crowd. To wit, the vast majority of WorksWithU site visitors have already upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04, according to an informal reader poll.
