I am not a fan of Ubuntu - being that I began installing a variety of linux versions installing and using it before Redhat became popular: i.e.; I have seen many versions become popular and fade out. I wonder how Linspire will handle Ubuntu distribution agreements and public offerings.
Besides that, I had tried to re-install my mkd 10.2 on the hard drive I had on x86 and now is on amd64. I could run the Mandr* LE but it did not find the ECS MOBO ethernet port. Alas, installing Ubunto on other partitions, Ubuntu imediately discovered the ethernet upon install and updated the apt packages. (I guess they are packages too?)
One point scored for Ubuntu.
Minus points, I will have to relearn to admin linux if I continue to use it. I am not sure if I should try to install Mandriva 2007.
I think it is worth the try. Any comments on Mandriva for amd64?
