Recently, i upgraded by Laptop to 1GB of RAM [Previously it was 256MB,though Ubuntu's min. system requirements
are 256MB RAM]. So i decided to give a try for installing Ubuntu on Laptop. I choose Ubuntu’s Latest flavor Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Also know Hardy Heron).The Operating system is superb, installing is very easy and quick, it takes about 15 Min. to install. While installing the ubuntu i came to know that ubuntu doesn’t have my city Nagpur in there time zone list, not even Mumbai or New Delhi, so i selected Kolkata.
When i installed ubuntu and after connecting to internet it gives me update warning, showing 268 updates available because the version i installed was 2 months older. Ubuntu has pretty nice and easy interface, faster, and transition effects are also cool.One of the interesting fact is that, The Altr+Ctrl+Del button combination given the Shut down screen !! .Its also supports my Bluetooth dongle without installing any external drivers.
Now , i am eagerly waiting for the new Ubuntu 8.10, It will be available for download and order 30th of Oct. 2008. If you need the current version for installation you can get ubuntu from there site i.e. Ubuntu.com, You can also order Ubuntu CDs for free from ShipIt.Ubuntu.com
