Ubuntu and BEA Workshop Studio

Filed under
Ubuntu

I work in Building 2 on the 4th floor of BEA's Corporate offices. I had moved into a new office, when I noticed a box of CDs on the filing cabinet near my office. They were CDs of Ubuntu, a Linux distribution. "Just what the world needs, another Linux distro", I thought to myself. Eight months later, I began to read more about Ubuntu, and wanted to try it out. The articles suggested it was a slick desktop experience and an easy installation process. By this time, the CDs were gone (I think I threw them out). So, I went to their site and downloaded their distro as an ISO and burned a CD.

One of the first things you notice is that you can boot off the CD and it works pretty well, if a but slowly. The second thing is that the install is pretty easy.

I wanted to try an real application with it, so I download BEA Workshop Studio, of course.

Full Story.
