Is Ubuntu really play well than windows?

I’ve posted about the Ubuntu Linux distro in my earlier post. Since that I’ve been regularly using it as my main OS in my laptop. I’ve to admit everyday I’m loving it. I wonder why I didn’t make that move long time ago. Yeah you can argue saying windows support various software and easy to install but what the heck Linux got more software than windows. You’ll almost find a software to competitive to windows software. BTW Linux is not an operating system to a geek who wanna try all the latest software all the time but hey I got a answer for that too. Save the money to purchase VMware for Linux and install Windows virtually if you can’t lave M$. (I also need M$ due to my clients support ) So I keep it in my virtual environment in order to support clients. I’ll sharing some of distro pics in order to share my experience with Linux. Anyway I found downside also, for gamers Linux will be no no..pls go to windows. But I found simple games to enjoy.

Linux OS in a USB Flash Drive

Most of us now aware of the Bootable OS CD’s. For those who is new to this it’s just a CD that will load the whole operating system into teh memory without thouching your Hard disk. Most of the tiem the main OS will be Linux. For windows XP users who needs to peek into the Linux world, this si teh ideal soultion. They can feel the OS without installing it to their system. But now time has change bootable option has been step forward to USB flash drives! This is much more faster thanks to the USB 2.0 . This means it’s much more faster than loading from the CD. Otehr advantage is your CD-rom is free for you to use and you can recover data from your non bootable HDD and can write it to a writable CD. So without much introduction I’ll introduct to one of the link I found in a web search.

If you’re still not sure to do this then go ahead and buy a USB flash drive preinstalled with Linux OS. Good option will be buying the following product,

Free Online data backup

There are many commercial online backup software and products available for a resonable price. While searching through the net I found a free edition which gives away 2GB online space to backup. The usage is very easy though restore option is not straight forward but not difficult at all. (After all it is a free verion) They also offer commercial version starting with 30GB options.
