Meant to add if you want to run it from within windows then you can download wubi as well to help with this.

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

I'm not happy you didn't include  links on how to run it on a Mac:smileytongue:

Saw it earlier alright it looks good. I convinced a friend to try the Netbook version on his old windows laptop over the weekend. He was very skeptical at first but he gave in and tried it. Talked to him yesterday and he loves it. Still finding his feet with it but he was asking me how to would go about partitioning the hard drive to install it permanently so he must be convinced!

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

You'll be waiting for Google OS, no? Heard the rumours that it maybe subscription?

I love linux. It's just so freeing or something. All that and nothing to pay. It makes me smug when using it but unfortunately I do have to return to windows :smileysad:

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

I haven't been overly impressed with what I've seen of the Chrome OS to tell you the truth. You can't help feeling that it doesn't have the full attention of Google and it's just another experiment that they might scrap in six months. 

Had Ubuntu installed on an old laptop before and loved it but, slagging aside, since I moved to Mac's I haven't used it. That's definitely not to say I won't in the future though. I'm just happy to have one working computer that the kids haven't wrecked:smileyvery-happy: (whatever the OS!)

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

I'll give it a try. Although I have my concerns about how much google is integrated into my life. Re the kids. Old chinese proverb say: Give a kid a computer and they'll wreck it in a day. Teach a kid to program and they'll feed you for a lifetime from the profits :smileywink:

:smileyvery-happy: I may dust off the text books on Objective C and Java so!

Yea I won't be able to resist trying it out but you are right about Google. They are just short of telling me what to have for breakfast at the moment!

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

Defo going to do it! Just need little head space and time to get it up and running. How straight forward and time consuming will it be to get set up?

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

Very straight forward. But play around with a live cd/usb first to see what you think. We can guide you through it

Good stuff Ruth, bit of variety! There's a link to a step by step in original thread that we posted in before about this. Nice bit of satisfaction when you try something like this for the first time and get it up and running!

Re: Ubuntu 11 out now!

Well maybe the download didnt fully complete? or the cd wasn't created properly. Can you reburn it?
