10 easy steps to Ubuntu freedom

Filed under
Ubuntu

You may be afraid to make the jump to Ubuntu Linux, thinking it may be too daunting to install it by yourself or perhaps you have never even done an operating system installation all by yourself but have a machine spare after your last replacement pc or upgrade arrived and want to dabble with Ubuntu.

In this blog I will show you exactly how easy it is to install Ubuntu.

Step 1 :: Get the ISO on disc

If you want to install Ubuntu you need a CD/DVD with the installer on it that you can get from friends, a “toaster” at some pc shops or download from bit torrent, the web or Ubuntu’s official website. Here is the link to the latter. http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

There are plenty of options available. Ubuntu has readymade ISO images for AMD64 systems, i386 and many more. You can even ignore the desktop version and go for the server edition, but that might be a bit tricky for first timers. This guide is aimed at Ubuntu Desktop users and was written using Ubuntu 9-10.

Step 2 :: Pop it in and fire it up

budgie-remix 16.04.2 Comes Equipped with the HWE Kernel from Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS

The great folks from the Ubuntu Budgie (formerly budgie-remix) GNU/Linux distribution had the pleasure of announcing the general availability of budgie-remix 16.04.2. What's budgie-remix 16.04.2, you may wonder? Well, as Ubuntu Budgie did not yet have a stable release, and because many people are still using the distro on their PCs with its previous name (budgie-remix), the developers updated it to be based on the recently released Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system. Being based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, which inherits the newer Linux 4.8 kernel and an updated graphics stack based on Mesa 12.0 3D Graphics Library from Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak), budgie-remix 16.04.2 comes equipped with its HWE kernel and graphics stack, as well as the latest Budgie 10.2.9 desktop environment.
