  • Ubuntu?

    Does anyone here run Ubuntu? I was just wondering because I have it on one of my computers and I would like some help using it.

    Re: Ubuntu?

    I have Ubuntu 9.10 dual-booted on two rigs. (Several others here also use ubuntu as well as other distros.) What do you need help doing?

    You can also Google your questions and most of the time, you'd find plenty of forum threads about your question/issue and even good tutorials to go with.

      I use 9.04 at work and it's great. The Ubuntu website has plenty of information and you can search the forums for lots of answers. It most likely has an install guide but the process is so simple that it's similar to installing Windows. It will even include options for dual-booting so it's easy to keep your Windows install intact.

      - It's who you game with.

            Oh well, that's pretty easy to solve. All you have to do is (in terminal): apt-get install wine

            Once you have Wine installed, you can usually install your game using Wine (as it emulates Windows libraries and such) then play. Though, I'd probably look your game up at www.winehq.com database first to see how well it runs before you install it.

                If Karmic tastes like butter, what does SUSE taste like?

                  I would try out the 9.04 version first. It is less bleeding edge and Ubuntu offers a Long Term Support of it for 3 years. The dot 10 versions tend to be more cutting edge but can cause more headaches to the casual user. YMMV.

                    You mean 8.04 is LTS. 10.04 LTS is out in about a month as well, so that's something to consider.

                    Which version you should go for really depends on your hardware. If your hardware is a year or older, installing Ubuntu usually isn't a problem. But if it is, be careful as new hardware support takes a bit longer to get in Ubuntu than windows.
