Ubuntu

June 27th 2007 in Personal, Tech

Last few weeks I have been playing around a lot with Ubuntu. After previous several half-hearted attempts to switch, which were further supported by some or the other thing not working, this time finally it looks complete. Yet few things (like setting permissions over a ntfs drive, flash for amd64 in firefox64 bit, talking in pidgin are few things that dont work before there is no software support yet and few things like Beryl dont work for me as I dont have hardware support) do not work completely, but most things work.
From the user point of view the installation of the packages is the most profound advantage and closely followed running programs in command prompt is a huge happy-thing for me. And of course there is the power of an ocean of useful programs, stable system ( wine does not work and the max it does is to log off :) ), and the flexibility to tweak :D
