Ubuntu

Recommended Posts

Yeah yeah, resurrecting a dead thread.

I just switched and I'm impressed.

My only computer is this HP Netbook I got from NorthernWish and his awesome partner in crime and I just checked the disk usage analyzer and I have it loaded with programs and it's using less than 7 GB for everything.

It runs quickly, does everything I want it to better than the XP Home that was on it, and looks way better. It has all of the features I miss from Mac (hot corners, better dock interfaces, clever settings and menues, etc) and the orice sure was right that's for sure.

Not that anyone should look to me for tech advice, but this is the best OS I've used on any non-apple computer.

(I'm running 10.10)

Awesome.

I threw Ubuntu on an old Thinkpad recently. Super impressed with how slick and easy the install went... There was still a little high geekery tweaking required to get everything just so, but it's a great OS and the performance is very impressive on such an old machine. I think it's finally ready to go much more mainstream. Curious to see how the new Unity interface is gonna be.
