10 easy steps to Ubuntu freedom
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.
