Finally got around to weaning Mr. Vidiot off of the MS poison. I have now, all by myself, backed up his files, installed UBUNTU, got his wireless to work, downloaded all updates, reloaded his files INCLUDING his Firefox bookmarks and all I can say is....


I mean, WOW.

It's free. It works. It looks decent.

I'm VERY impressed, both with the system AND with myself.

WooHoo! Yay for me.

OK, sorry. I had to toot my own horn. I'm a dork, not a computer geek so I'm just a little shocked I managed to pull it off.

Next you will find yourself messing around with Puppy Linux installed on a Flashdrive or checking out the latest GOS distro.
I believe you have let the Genie out of the bottle!
Have fun!

oh...and by the way, hotlinking to an image is frowned upon. (Ubuntu logo) Blogger will host images for just takes a few more steps. And you can edit the resulting image code to link the image to Ubuntu or wherever.

i didn't mean to hotlink the image. I think it just happened because I put the URL of the image in instead of downloading and then uploading. I was using the "new" machine. It felt wrong to soil it like that before Mr. Vidiot has even gotten a crack at it. I feel like it's the Magic Johnson of computers. It WAS infected with a disease (MicroSoft) and now it's not!

As for puppy linux?? Wah? Great. something else I have to google before I get down to some work.

Thanks D. Looks like the first thing I'll be doing tomorrow is creating a puppy flash drive.
