Poking at Pinguy 10.10.1

Filed under
Linux

Earlier this week, the Ubuntu 11.04 beta was released. I was looking forward to trying out the Unity interface, as regular readers know; I’m apprehensive about it but I want to give it a fair chance. But the installer threw an error right at the end, and though it seemed to have finished, the resulting system was unbootable.

So there I was, with a newly borked disk (not a production system, thankfully) and some unrequited geekery to requite. I happened to also have on hand an installation disc for Pinguy 10.10.1, so I popped it in and installed that instead.

The installation went surprisingly fast, considering how much larger than Ubuntu Pinguy is, and completed without incident. On first boot with Pinguy I was immediately struck by the cosmetic details.
