Ubuntu – Linux For Human Beings

I’ve just heard about Ubuntu Linux and placed an order on their site for a free CD. That’s right, they’ll send you a free pressed CD (or more if you request them). I’ve tried various Linux distributions including Red Hat, Mandrake (now Mandriva), SuSE and the Knoppix live CD distribution, but am still using Windows for my day-to-day computing, simply because I’ve been a Windows user since the 3.1 days. I’ve dabbled in Linux for server use (I set up proxy and Intranet servers last year during my work placement) but hope to make the plunge into using it as my primary desktop OS once I find a distribution I really like. Maybe Ubuntu will be the one!

I’ll post a review of Ubuntu once the disc lands on my doormat :)
