Running Ubuntu Linux on Acer Tablet

Filed under
Ubuntu

I want to share the experience I gained from the switch over to Ubuntu Linux a few months ago. It might be of some help to other people looking for a superb alternative to Windows.

Even though the new Windows Vista OS is being released, some people might not want to use this upgrade. There are numerous unbiased reasons not to upgrade, including the fact that Vista is extremely demanding on resources and will cost an arm and leg to upgrade. On the other hand, Ubuntu is completely free and so are most other Linux programs.

I did a lot of research on comparable programs available in Linux because at first I was not convinced that Linux had everything that Windows had to offer. My reasoning was simple because if this were true, then millions of users would stop paying for the Microsoft programs.

All Linux distributions are built solidly. Open source means that functionality and debugging does not have to wait until a company deems it appropriate to deliver a new OS or patch. Ubuntu is built on Debian, which is a very strong and popular distribution.
