I’ve been always curious to try out new operating systems. Trying to move away from expensive software like Microsoft and move to the freedom world called Linux. I think I found the perfect Linux distro to that which is “Ubuntu” This is one of the user friendly Linux distro for beginners. In my understanding with Linux I will prefer this one most. At the moment of writing the latest version is 6.10 called “Edgy” . As many Linux distributions this one also allows you to test this OS in bootable CD. Ubuntu linux is having few flavors. Kubuntu which is default desktop is KDE. and Ubuntu is having Gnome. Even though you can try both in the same environment I found Gnome is much less resource hungry and works faster. I’ve been used to Windows environment and thought moving to Linux will be really difficult. We all have been habbit of GUI environment of Windows and really afraid to go away from clicking mouse buttons (Lol). Anyway Linux GUI has been improved vastly. It almost like you’re using windows environment and the great thing is applications are loading very faster. I hope the following links will provide you appearance of the Ubuntu linux and make a apatite to try them out. After all don’t be afraid to freedom!!
