I upgraded Ubuntu last night – piece of cake and it’s looking pretty smick. Haven’t had much of a chance to play around with it, but I do like the fact that it has Firefox 3 and I look forward to giving the new Bit Torrent program that comes as standard.
I think it’s the third upgrade I’ve done on this laptop. Haven’t had to do a clean install yet and everything is working fantastically.
There’s been a lot of talk around the interwebs about this particular distro finally being able to take on the Microsoft juggernaut and with Visa being a shit as it is, you just never know.
… and while we’re on it, a follow up point to this conversation. Visa is shit so hopefully it will be the death knell for Microsoft. Which basically leaves Linux and OSX. OSX won’t win the distro wars because it’s built for Mac hardware. You’ll never run Mac OSX on a generic computer – or at least not in any main stream manner.
So the winner is Linux!
