The past two weeks I have begun tinkering with Linux again. I initially a few months back had installed an instance of Kubuntu on my desktop, only to become completely frustrated with it taking 12 hours to get a dual-head display adapter working correctly. This time though I reformatted a server I was using for Asterisk and installed Cent-OS 5.1 Server on it and at the same time went for trying straight up Ubuntu on my laptop.
The Cent-OS install has been flawless. No real bells and whistles on that machine, running Asterisk for VoIP with 5-10 handsets, some internal some external. Ubuntu on my IBM Lenovo Thinkpad X60 hasn’t been as smooth. I’ve been hitting www.thinkwiki.com like it’s my home page, that’s been awesome. I’m not convinced though in being sold to it yet as a lot of my web design software is Windows based and I’m an Outlook Exchange user…ya, not so Linux friendly.
However this morning through my inbox came my favorite Linux article I’ve read that pretty much sums up my whole experience in a nutshell. I love it. It is an article written by Adrian Kingsley-Hughes entitled 30 things I’ve learned from using Linux.Find this useful? Take just a moment and give a $1. Thanks!
