So, Linux

Mar. 21st, 2011 10:26 pm
So, for about a month now, I've been running Ubuntu Linux 10.whatever on my laptop. Partly because Vista, after coming with it and being used for a couple years, was doing really random bizarre things like not recognizing USB things unless they were plugged in when the computer was turned on.

So, how has it been working? Pretty good, really. I haven't had anything to complain about. Mostly, I'm running internet stuff, and that's supported as well or better on Linux as it is in Windows. Gaming other than flash games is harder, but I got out of the habit of a good bit of gaming through the simple expedient of being broke and busy and not having the time or money. Other than gaming, for internet stuff and writing and such, Linux is doing just fine for me. The desktop's laid out well enough, and it has a search for programs, which was one of the things I'd gotten to actually like about Vista. Made me feel like I was using command line again almost.

I realize this isn't a very in-depth review, but somewhere along the way, I stopped being so interested and entertained by figuring out all the little tweaks to make computers run right, and just want them to work like I need them to. Ubuntu's been doing that pretty well for me, and so I'm happy. I do have Windows 7 (legal, even!) installed on a partition, but I've rarely felt the need to use it.
