Biting the bullet - installing ubuntu [Oct. 22nd, 2007|11:00 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Right, I'm finally biting the bullet.

First gripe - apparently, even if I have a /boot partition already there, I have to reformat it. I'm not happy with that. But anwho.

Later: First phase of installation went without a hitch. I like some aspects of the installer, like copying user profiles etc. I've pulled them across for my dad, so he can have an account and play around. I just need to reboot and set up some other things.

Post-reboot: Wow, this I can live with. Shiny desktop effects and things just work. I'm kinda amazed. I want to see this become a windows killer now!
