From OS X to Ubuntu: 2 Years Later

Filed under
Ubuntu

A little more than 2 years ago, I made a switch away from Mac OS X to Ubuntu Linux. Since then, I have used Ubuntu Linux about 98% of the time on my personal and work computers. I still have to support Windows on some computers at work, I kept my Macbook (which rarely got turned on), I kept Windows XP in a virtual machine (which I need about once a month) and of course all my friends and family still call me with Windows and Mac problems.

Today, I want to revisit the article I wrote 2 years ago about 10 things I missed when switching from OS X to Ubuntu. There have been 5 major Ubuntu upgrades since I wrote my original article, have things changed that much? Do I still miss the things I missed back then? Let’s look at each point again, and see how things have changed.
