First Post

OK Hi,

This is my first post on this blog just to get it started….

I decided as I update my various PC & laptops I will update this blog with details to help me remember how I did it and hopefully help others.

I have now been using Ubuntu Jaunty J since it was released in April and Ubuntu as an O/S since Fiesty way back in September 2007, quickly upgrading the Gusty after it came out in October 2007. I’ve used Windows O/S for may years but slowly started to use open source software with it and by the time I decided to move over to Linux I was already using several open source programs including Firefox, Thunderbird & OpenOffice.

So I downloaded the Jaunty Live CD and notebook NBR img release on the day after it launched in April 2009, and have since upgraded my Asus Eee PC 701 4G laptop, Sony Vaio VGN-NS11J laptop and home brew Desktop shortly after. All seems OK with a few teething troubles with Firefox which is intermittently locking and shutting down on me at the moment. This is probably caused by flash and or the fact I have transferred the settings over from the previous build.

The worst “Out Of The Box” experience was the install on the Eee laptop because the mouse & touch pad responces were very jerky and the answer was to install another Linux kernal & headers which is not a job you would expect to have to do on first install. The netbook remix look good and works OK on the Eee but still some work to do if we are to convert more Windows users. I will add a post detailing my Eee PC install later.
