Ubuntu Powa!

oooooooooooooh yeah baby!

Ubuntu Linux 6.10 is on my laptop as I type this and I looooooooooove it.

It installed smoothly and it has not caused me any pain after the install for configuration.

Directly after install, I used the install CD to add a very important package: Network Manager.
Once this was installed, it automatically detected my wlans and configured my wireless networking in a snap... I just had to type in my password.
Now, I also used automatix in order to install the DVD libraries and all those very useful software packages too. Its a step along the way of having dev-buntu ;)
It took me only a few hours to have everything I wanted (and more), compared to the half a day or full day of before. Oh, and it was mostly automatized, so I didn't have to actually DO anything, really. Yay!
