From Windows to Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

The decision to switch to Ubuntu wasn’t a hard one. After all the problems I was having with Vista, it was a no brainer. My only concern was putting my wife through another OS change. We were using Windows exclusively up until about 2 years ago when I decided to buy a Mac. That was a big change for her but she got used to it quickly and now enjoys it more than Windows.

Over the last 2 years I’ve been fading out my Windows machines for Apples, but when Vista came along, I wanted to pick it up just for kicks and giggles. I always like to have 1 Windows PC in the house just for those applications that I cant run on a Mac, plus I was in the need for a new PC, so buying one with Vista pre-installed was the right choice for us.

The thrills of Vista wore out faster than the flavor in a stick of Juicy Fruit gum. Get over here Ubuntu! I’ve heard so much about Ubuntu that I just had to give it a try.

So here we go again, bust out the snacks and cold beer, it’s time to wipe out the system and re-load another OS. The installation was a breeze and all of my hardware was recognized and working perfectly on the first try.
