I always prefer Ubuntu for linux users specially home users. Besides windows I used Mandrake Linux 7, 8, 9, 10 then Fedora 4,5 and Ubuntu 7 and currently 8. I found Ubuntu is faster, easier to install.
In version 8.0, I found some difference.
1. There is no su command. Even the system when install don’t want the administrator or root user password.
2. As I used Nokia 6300 Phone for internet connection. I used this command to config. In the shell window I give command, sudo wvdialconf
Then wvdial.conf from /etc/ automatically changed.
Then I give command, wvdial to connect internet. At first time, my connection couldn’t established. I didn’t know about the reason. But right now, its working nicely.
However, i’ve to install a lot software for my works. Then I could give a brief description. However, I hope Ubuntu will replace windows completely in near future.
