Actually, I couldn’t decide so I have installed Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS.
(on different computers and harddrives)
Both were easy to install…
Ubuntu 8.10 gave me the most problem when I burned the iso.
Could have been an issue with the media after I downloaded it
or the md5. but after trying 2 different sites the second dl burned fine.
Have been playing with Ubuntu and for me not knowing anything
about Linux, Debian and the like. I have found this to be pretty
user friendly. Had to laugh though…there were 208 updates I
needed to down load…hahaha…visions of windows?
Best part was a couple of clicks and they all downloaded fine and
installed with no problem.
Although I have read you really don’t need a firewall or av I installed
ClamAV and Firestarter just for grins and to play with.
I could ramble on more because this is a pretty exciting adventure
but, i’ll save it for later…
I must say though…I really like the clean look of both OS’s.
You don’t have the screen full of iconic shortcuts.
Just a nice dropdown menu for everything…sweet !
