Day 3 – It’s coming on!

It's aliveee!!

It's aliveee!!

So Day 3 and we’re up and running! A late night and some assistance from a dear friend meant that once I tried a 32-bit installer instead of a 64-bit one it worked straight off! Not only do I have native graphics resolution and sound but I also have all the apps I wanted AND the function keys even work for volume and sound and such. 

Ubuntu is a totally different beast to Suse. It feels sophisticated, slick and the desktop effects makes it feel like a modern mature OS. The office applications I have start in seconds in Ubuntu compared to a minute or so in Vista on the same machine and the footprint for the OS installation is considerably less than the 25gb Windows is using! 

I’ve even contributed to the community as best I can by adding to a community wiki on which laptops work with Linux.
