Ubuntu Installation

with 3 comments

I just finished installing Ubuntu Linux on an old desktop (now server) machine.

The last time I installed Linux was several years ago with a Redhat install and this experience was nothing like that. The Ubuntu install was EASY, kicked me into a GUI after the install, detected all my drivers (including a wireless network card that I was able to immediately use to connect), and generally was helpful throughout the process.

I’m using the Linux install to begin using some of the open source tools for Linux.

I have to admit that I’m pretty excited to be diving back into Linux. Thanks, Jason, for the recommendation.

  1. Anytime bro. The new Fedora installation is just as friendly, but I still prefer Ubuntu.

    Glad you got it all working.

  3. I recently installed Fedora Core 5 as an MS Virtual Server, and it went quite well. Don’t forget to get your updates using ‘yum’, which is the Linux version of Windows Update. I haven’t been able to get a distro that can run on in a virtual server with my dual-core machine. Anybody have any advice?
