Yesterday, January 11, I installed Ubuntu Linux through Wubi. It was a simple exprience. I just had to run the installer, fire it up, restart into Ubuntu, and once it was done, just went back into Ubuntu, logged in, and It was a fresh install. No black screen. It was already connected to the network. I fired up Firefox to check my mail, and bingo, it was connected. The best part is that it kept Vista because I am a hobbist developer.
Any recommendations for a Linux blogging tool like Live Wrter?
Well the ability to hide crap works good. But the reorganization was a deorganisation. The UI is a jumble of different styled icons, with the polldaddy and upgrades. The icons without them look somewhat pretty. But WP is slowwwwwwwwww! The custom buttons look awful and the combobox up there is a dumb place to put it. The tabs I use to switch dashboards is also gone.
Dumb Terminals, which lived off of the Internet, had an Operating System installed locally. With the cloud, what is powering it? Operating Systems. What is there to make the computer to do something? Operating Systems!
