My Ubuntu Update

Just a quick update on my Ubuntu progress… A few days ago, I finished loading Ubuntu on one of my old boxes and it works great!

All in all, the install was relatively simple and seamless, much, much easier than another Linux flavor that I had tried to install a couple of years ago. Ubuntu was able to find all my hardware including my Ethernet adaptors. I haven’t tried the sound, nor have I dried the CDRW or anything like that so now the next step is to spend a couple of weeks trying out the different applications. My main thing is to be able to create and exchange MS Word compatible documents and PDF files and also I want to install a few web development applications and try that too. Later I will mess around with the Apache web server and MySQL database…

I’ll keep ya’ll posted…
