i dunno I still got issues with linux. Maybe its just me, I've always felt you have to fix everything to get it to work. Its a BOB OS (broken out of the box) lol. I mean power to Opensource, but it has a ways yet to go before I will jump on.

I wouldnt say you need to fix things, more like get them working for your system. Its satisfying when you get it setup the way you want though.

Last time i installed Ubuntu it worked pretty much out the box bar my wireless card. Again the same happened when i installed an old version on Mandrake at uni. Its not that bad, but yeah you need to put a bit of time into it, as with most new things, its new!

You cenrtainly dont need to fiddle for hours to get a basic apps working.

DMCE is correct, with Ubuntu.

Only for a majority of apps though.

Want something not pre-set up?

Good luck.

It goes both ways, though.

Program support in windows is starting to dwindle.

But, this is why I just use parallels, in os x.

The best of linux, best of windows, in a stable OS X base.


However, this is a HUGE step in the acceptance of Ubuntu.

If they keep up this momentum, they could very well become a viable desktop option for users.

Ubuntu has to worry about windows yes...

But if they aren't careful, OS X will come from behind and steal a good chunk of what Ubuntu has accomplished. ;)

[No, I will not tell people how to get this working, and yes it is the windows UT]

customization is *nix (ubuntu, etc) best suit. Most drivers they have work for what is out there. Games is a sore point for me though. IF they get game support fixed (or better) then I will definitely be willing to jump on.
