Ubuntu Is The Leader Among Linux Desktops?

July 20th, 2006


eWEEK.com recently reviewed the latest version of Ubuntu Linux, Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. As they compared the linux desktop operating system with other linux distros, they commented in their article "Ubuntu 6.06 Is Current Desktop Linux Champ" that:

Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system—so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions.

They also discussed in another article on whether Ubuntu would pose any threat to Window Vista. Though I believe it won't, but I strongly recommend you to give it a try. Here's some screenshots.

Speaking of Ubuntu, I just got my CDs yesterday, after requesting for them on June 8th, 2006. If you don't want to wait that long (well, it's more than 1 month for me) and you live somewhere near Malaysia, I have a few extras. Just leave a message in this post and I'll try to mail it to you as soon as possible.

If my article helped you solved your problem, consider buy me a beer!

Since you have router, all you have to do is to configure your LAN. This guide might help you on this:

The fact that most people look over… Ubuntu provides the best ‘support’ around that you ever wish to find. Every answer is just a few minutes away from the answer… the thing that makes Ubuntu the brilliant distro that it is.

I too agree. Now, I’ve been using Ubuntu since three weeks, and in this time I found the support for it very good. The Ubuntu Universal Repository is something that really makes it to the top, besides its cool looks.
