glad you like ubuntu, but what you see isnt linux. linux is "just" kernel. kernel is program that manages resources (like cpu, ram, hdd etc.) and manages programs you run, so basically you never see linux. and btw, ubuntu is based on debian, which is based on GNU/Linux, and GNU/Linux is based on unix :D

At least he didn't call it Ubuntu/Linux, like some people seem to.

'Grats on finding the OS for you. :)

Many people have flammed me writing Ubuntu/Linux where / means "or" . If Ubuntu is not a Linux what is it . It is linux but has its own flavour .

I think I've been guilty of that! :P

Glad you have discovered 10.10, it is a fantastic version and I haven't had the need to fire up my XP system for over 2 months now :D

It should be Ubutnu/GNU/Linux, but that's just incredibly confusing. Canonical just call it "Ubuntu Linux".

Linux began life as a minix clone, which in turn was a UNIX compatible open source OS created for educational purposes.

As far as Linux being the best OS, OSX is obviously superior. :popcorn:

No. Linux does refer to the kenrel, but it is also a general term for any operating system that uses the Linux kernel. According to wikipedia:


Linux ... refers to the family of Unix-like computer operating systems using the Linux kernel.


This has been the general usage for many, many years so don't "correct" people who use that terminology.

Re- Changing the printer in order to us (any) Linux.

Ya buy a garbage printer for Windows and it lasts for a year before it craps out and you expect (any) Linux to support it?
Think not!

You will find that the REAL printers are well supported by the Linux community. (HP supports their own!)

Also remember, that cups comes out of OSx/Apple .. (the "supposedly" superior (but expensive and hardware restricted) software) .. so if there are printer issues .. blame Apple for NON SUPPORT.
