    Talking I got Ubuntu 5.10 Cd's in the mail..

    I thought it was going to be a few more months but I finally got them..
    32 and 64 bit versions.. plus Mac...

    I like the live version.. pretty nice.. the only thing that irks me is that none of the media players can play .mp3's.. I think that has something to
    do with piracy laws .. other then that, I think I am going to install the full version. The live version also detects my 2.0 USB drives.. Happy !

    Ya man.. I wasn't expecting that.. plus I requested "a lot" of them.. they came in a big happy bag...

    I found out that they didn't put in the .mp3 plug-ins for there differnt media players because of "software patents" , however.. you can load them by using the Synaptic package loader.. in the upper tool bar.. there are differnt "audio" packages. I ended up loading some of those pacakes. plus XMMS Player.. which is like Winamp. Today, I 'm doing a full install on one of my Pentium 3 workstations.. between "eating"

    I made this desktop wallpaper up for Ubuntu using The Gimp Graphics program.
    I have the Ubuntu logo in the left upper corner. It's 800x600 though..

    Very nice, I had formatted a ubuntu h/d to install xp pro for a friend. I never really heard of this new OS. I will have to read more about it.

    Ubuntu is pretty slick. I've been running it on my main rig now for a while. Good stuff.
    Simply run adaware, spybot, ZoneAlarm, HijackThis, AVG, update windows daily, have a router, don't open e-mail, turn off action scripting, don't use P2P networks, don't violate EULAs, and wear a condom to get Windows secured.

    People say Linux is alot of work!

    So, is this considered a new OS, or another Linux distribution?

    Linux isn't an OS - it's just a kernel.

    Ubuntu is a new linux distro.

    Yes, but that wasn't what I asked anyway. The actual naming scheme of the GNU/Linux "OS" has been debated for several years now.

    About Ubuntu

    A brief overview of the Ubuntu Project, and links to more information.

    Ubuntu is a free, open source operating system that starts with the breadth of Debian and adds regular releases (every six months), a clear focus on the user and usability (it should "Just Work", TM) and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of support for every release. Ubuntu ships with the latest Gnome release as well as a selection of server and desktop software that makes for a comfortable desktop experience off a single installation CD.

    Strictly speaking, GNU/Linux is an OS - based on the linux kernel.
