About nUboon2Age and Ubuntu
I first encountered GNU/Linux in 1997 when my ISP was using Debian. I liked its standardization, cautious development approach and the .deb packaging system. I flirted with Linux in 1998 with Corel Linux -- really easy install and beautiful KDE desktop, but was bewildered by the whole lilo/grub boot management dual booting w/ M$'s OSs. I didn't really start dating until 2009 when I installed Xubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope dual boot w/ XP on an 5 year old laptop with only 238M Ram(!) In May 2010 I had just upgraded the laptop's memory but experienced an XP-related hard disk meltdown, so deleted the M$ virus from the system entirely and installed Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and fell in love. In July 2010 I started tinkering with Wubi and Kubuntu to get familiarized with them.
I love Lucid Lynx's gorgeous look and feel, ease of use and the many built-in benefits of Ubuntu like:
The huge Ubuntu community that provides so much support to one another
The Ubuntu Software Center & Synaptic being a quick one-stop 'shop' for loads of FLOSS software
Fast boot time and good performance
Installation that is quick and painless (usually)
Its Debian foundation including the .deb packaging system
The Gnome desktop and environment that is competitve with Windoze and Macintosh for ease of use
The approach Ubuntu has taken to target everyday and new computer users
The Lucid colors and themes
The emphasis on Python for Ubuntu development
More to come...
