Looking for something different, I recently downloaded and installed Ubuntu on my netbook. I have been a LOYAL Sabayon Linux user for many years now. I still use Sabayon, but wanted to learn another distribution. Since Ubuntu seems to be a popular distribution, I thought I would give it a try.
I first downloaded the Ubuntu netbook remix, but I hated the interface. Then, I downloaded and installed the standard desktop edition (10.04). On my Hannspree Hanns Note Netbook, installation worked like a champ. No issues, wireless and bluetooth worked out of the box. 10.04 is fast and responsive. Webcam and hotkeys worked too.
Linux basic commands are all the same, but there are some differences between Sabayon and Ubuntu. I’m working on getting used to the new commands like apt-get.
Fellow Readers… (Whomever that may be…)
Just some updates. July was a busy month for me. My little baby had to have surgery, so we were flown Hawaii where Doctors at Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) operated on my little girl. The surgery went well, and we are very thankful.
It was very nice to visit Hawaii, but I was glad, as always, to get back home. My Dad was fortunate enough to make it over to be with Audrey and I during the surgery. This was the first time he had flown since around 1966. Airports and aircraft have changed dramatically since then, huh?
I’m back to work now, and actually looked forward to coming to work for the first time in a long time. The weather is raining, as usual this time in the pacific. August is just around the corner, and school will be starting.
Sabayon Linux 3.5 was released while I was gone. I’m downloading it now, and will install it when it’s done downloading or later on this week. Probably won’t be done downloading until later on this week. My ISP sucks over here.
As far as my website goes, I plan on redoing it once again. It needs a new look. I’m pretty much tired of the look. And since I have more time now, I plan on hand coding my new site. As soon as I come up with a color scheme, I’ll get busy.
Enough for now… I’ll try to post more later and include some photo’s I took in Hawaii…
