Its been a while ..yes I know. A lot of thing happen in my life lately. From Linux, car accident and new smartphone Blackberry.
The best thing that happen to me. Seriously. You can explore a new world of OS other than window. Not just Ubuntu but many other Distro such as Linux Mint, Simple Linux, Oshirix and Puppy Linux. Ubuntu especially has opened up my eyes that you can do a lot of thing with your laptop and you don’t have to pay a cent for it. You don’t have to worry about trojan, virus or slow application. Because with Linux you don;t have to install antivirus or spyware because trojan and virus are designed for windows only :).
For the record I have reformat my laptop hard disk 3 times and bought a new hard disk because of Linux. Don’t worry Linux especially Ubuntu is safe and user friendly. It just me, I tried and experiment a lot of new application and format my hard disk without proper knowledge.
I know its hard to convince you to try Linux same goes with me. Adi from Oshirix has tried for 2 years to convince me to try Oshirix. Unfortunately I fell in love with Ubuntu. Anyway he still happy with it.
Starting from Wubi, where you can install Ubuntu as a new program application in your windows or dual boot which I recommend. You can google or download the manual for step by step to create dual boot with Window and Linux. You can download Ubuntu at Ubuntu.com or request for free installation CD.
Good Luck ! I will continue to update here : )
