LXer: Five days of Ubuntu Linux

Published at LXer:

Last wednesday I ordered a new laptop. Iíll definitely be installing Vista on it, if only for gaming and DirectX 10, but I also plan to use it as an excuse to get to grips with Linux. Iíve read many accounts of the various distributions of Linux, and they all agree on a few things: Itís massively more stable than Windows, there are so few viruses, theyíre not even worth worrying about and itís fast. Why wait for the laptop to arrive, I asked myself? I cleared up some space on my second hard drive, downloaded the latest Ubuntu release, and gave it a go. This is my account of it, as a completely new user.
