I'm making the change to Ubuntu on my third hdd to try it out and

see if it is something that I'd prefer. I've been strugglin with

windows but because inside my heart I just love and thrive on

rebellion; the urge to differ from the mainstream of thought,

Ubuntu seems really attractive.

and I just learned ms-dos...wow

No dual-booting or hassle required to run Ubuntu and Windows
Oh, like Suse? OK lol, doesn't make much difference though.

Disconnect your other drives before installing so that it can have its own MBR.

This release is noticeably quicker for me, and I enjoyed the fact that the live CD picked a good resolution and worked with my 8800GT with no tweaking.

Too bad it won't work with my wireless card oh well back to Arch then

Lol. Tell me about it. I just had to build the intel wireless drivers for my dell because ubuntu doesnt come with them. Fun...

Other than that minor niggle (plus the fact I cant get WICD for the time being...) it looks to be really good and stable. Im on it now, and it flows along seamlessly.

Now to get started on the Visuals...

VERY nice, i like how if there's pretty much anything you want to do, like playing a video with a random codec, it goes to the internet and downloads what you need, no more searching to find weird linux apps and then trying to figure out how to install them. I also like how i can mount my windows hard drive and get anything i want to. it's great how the add/remove programs part actually lets you add programs and not just remove them like in wondows, i can do pretty much anything i want in ubuntu now except game, so i think i'll run it on my laptop.
