from ms to linux moving on

Posted 09-06-2008 at 06:53 AM by bhupendra

I have now settled on Ubuntu Hardy. The Windows Vista is confined to Virtual Box. i have also got Fedora on virtual Box.
I have recently downloaded the KDE for Hardy. So I now have the best of both Ubuntu and Kubuntu. I quite like the KDE desktop and the ease of use of Gnome. Why Ubuntu/Kubuntu? I shall describe the reasons here.

I was quite impressed with Suse 10.3 and SuSe 11.0. Both the gnome and KDE versions downloaded and installed easily with Live CD. The desktop is great. I was quite comfortable with handling both versions. Internet connection, sound, Video and everything else worked straight after installation. However, the biggest problem was installing updates. The online site for the update never worked even after long waits. So adding and removing software became impossible. So I had to very reluctantly say...

My Journey from MS to Linux

Posted 08-02-2008 at 06:04 PM by bhupendra

I have flirted with various flavours of Linux from the days of Red Hat 4.0 and SuSe 8.0. In the intervening period I have managed to acquire a degree in Computing and IT from Open University, UK. I do not work in IT, and at 58 it is perhaps a little late for finding a job in IT. During the past year, I have familiarized myself with Ubuntu, Fedora, SuSe and Mandriva. I have finally settled on Fedora 9.0 and Ubuntu Hardy. Thanks to LinuxQuestions.org, I hope to describe my trials and tribulations...
