Well, it’s been one week since I successfully installed Ubuntu on my main desktop computer. How was the experience so far? Well, unfortunately, my experience so far has been somewhat limited by the fact that I haven’t been home very much in the evenings to make use of it. To make the most of it, I intentionally left my work laptop (running Windows 7) at the office to remove any temptation to go back to the familiar world of Windows. But I did manage to try a variety of different tasks in Ubuntu in that limited time span. As you’ll recall from previous posts, there are four essential roles that I use my computer for when at home: check email, listen to music, browse the web, and watch videos.
