Basic Installation of Ubuntu 5.04:
Final Words

I have had no problems with Ubuntu except for the minor hotport issue. This is my fist installation of linux and I have had no prior
experience using linux, though I have used some unix before. I've actually been using Kubuntu which is the same thing as Ubuntu except
they switch out the GNOME gui for the KDE gui. I find the OS very intuitive and I never had trouble finding things. Speed wise things
are a little slow but that is probably due to this laptop only having a 500 mhz CPU :( . I have been a long time Windows user and I
have been really impressed with Ubuntu. I still plan to keep Windows XP on my desktop because I need it to run Windows only programming
IDEs and also for gaming, but Ubuntu is perfect for my laptop.
