The Learning Curve
I’ve recently blown away Windows 7 Professional from my main computer and installed Ubuntu 11.04, Natty Narwhal.
The continual problems and blue screens just got the better of me, and I ditched the whole sorry mess. Ubuntu installed in 20 minutes, didn’t ask for any drivers and is running like a dream.
All of the software I used in Windows was open source or free software anyway, and it was all cross-platform – what was there to lose apart from frustration?
This version of Ubuntu features the new interface called Unity.
Journeyman is an old term meaning someone who is no longer an apprentice but not yet a master craftsman. That’s where I am with Gnu/Linux and Ubuntu.
This is my record of interesting things I learn as I explore Ubuntu, and any tips or gotchas or warnings for those who might decide to follow me.
