Anytime is fun time with the Linux boxen. My desktop and Brian's laptop needed some Gutsy Gibbon to Hardy Heron Kubuntu action this weekend, so I fetched in the iso image for the CD so that I could upgrade both for one download. I like to use BitTorrent to fetch in those large files so that I'm not troubling any one server for the bandwidth.
Yeah, my name on myopera is slackwrdave, and I did run Slackware for over 10 years, but with release 12, I felt like it had become too much trouble. I won't go into details, but there was way too much headbanging over a few little niggling problems, and the official documentation was conflicting and usually outdated. I needed something I could help Brian administer over the telephone, as he travels a lot, so the Ubuntu/Kubuntu thing looked like a winner.
Anytime is fun time with these Gnu/Linux boxes! They run like a dream. :yes: It still amazes me that I can download and install an entire operating system without having to have permission to do it, AND it's primo stuff. They are free, too, free as in "without charge", and free as in "without restriction". Ain't they cool. 😀
Free, free, free. Doncha wanna be free baby? lol
