Starting a week with Ubuntu and Lenovo's X61 ThinkPad: First impressions
I finally decided to put my OS where my mouth is. Or, at least, where my typing fingers are. I'm typing this from a Lenovo X61 ThinkPad...running Ubuntu 7.10. I'm going to spend the next week or so reporting on the experience, including some first-person accounts from the lady who has cut my hair for the past 21 years, Valerie, and my grandma, whom I've noted before has been locked out of the Linux experience.
Well, today we're going to see just how much substance there is to my prior contention.
If my experience with Ubuntu on Lenovo's X61 ThinkPad continues to go as well as it has until now, I might even say it's a drag race between Mac OS X and Ubuntu. Ubuntu doesn't make a fetish of itself. It's just there. It's letting the applications do the talking without getting in the way.
