Ubuntu Is The Leader Among Linux Desktops?

Thursday, 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.

Free Ubuntu CDs

Sunday, April 16th, 2006

I've just received my free Ubuntu Linux CDs I requested few weeks ago. It took a long time to travel from The Netherlands to Malaysia. I'm still fixing and configuring my old Pentium III PC for it.

If you are interested to try Ubuntu, download it or request for the CDs from the official Ubuntu website.
