My life with Linux special edition: Going back

Ubuntu

And so this column is coming to you courtesy of Ubuntu. But not just any Ubuntu, it's the Netbook Remix, and I'm typing this on a wee little Asus Eee PC. I said I'd try the latest build of desktop Ubuntu a couple of months back, but this looked a lot more fun. And it has an interesting name.

The good news is that there is nothing - absolutely nothing - fundamentally wrong with this operating system. And in that respect it's just great. Pop it on a bootable flash drive - the website will show you how - reboot and away you go.

The interface itself is pretty, or at least something approaching pretty. At any rate, it's cohesive and avoids the typical rambling Linux menus larded with near-identical applications.
