I’ve had a PC with Ubuntu linux on it for a while but it was an old pile of junk and I never had much motivation to work on it or even use it. I had considered buying a KVM switch so I could run both side by side but I’ve taken a bolde step. I’ve done a dual boot on my system – Windows XP and Ubuntu 6.10. It’s not been problem free so far but I’ve managed to find my way through (I’ll post my handy hints for Nvidia graphics users later) but I’m enjoying it and there is very little I can’t do in Ubuntu that I can do in XP.
It’s a learning experience but I like the idea of being free of HAVING to use MS software. I’ve grown to love open source software like gaim, firefox and filezilla – ubuntu promises so much.
