If you’ve read this blog, you know we installed Ubuntu after or vacation in September when windows kindly gave us the Black Screen of Death (NTLDR Missing). Peter has a love hate relationship with it, but he had a similar relationship with Windows. Granted, I wish he’d love Ubuntu 9.10 as much as I do, but I’ll take what I can get. And, what I can get is free. We’ve had a combination of hardware and software problems, so it’s not always easy to diagnose. Thankfully, Ubuntu has a terrific user’s forum where kindly users offer needed help. Today, I’m going to include some of my favorite things about Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala.
