Default Ubuntu 10.10 baby !!!

Even though I am struggling with the lack of RAM, (Will fix that tho LOL) I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a VM inside Windows this morning.. Install likely took a little longer then normal, Again lacking RAM that makes sense !!

Still lots to learn

but so far so good !

I've been dual booting linux on my laptops for a long time and ubuntu has always been my favorite flavor.

It can now automatically find essential drivers for almost any laptop and comes with everything you need installed.

Ps: just for fun. Try running the command "sudo apt-get moo". Apparently someone was smoking some good stuff while coding lol.

I've been watching Ubuntu and playing with it every so often. It really does get better with every release.
