    Automatix has been a great help to me and I think it's a very good tool for the starters.
    Good luck to arnieboy and his great app!

    Re: What has been your Automatix experience?

    It's a GREAT application and I find it fundamental because it does a lot of work for me (so that every reinstallation or new installation of Ubuntu is a breeze). Using Ubuntu has never been easier. I recommend it to all my friends.

    Thanks Arnieboy.

    I have used it and it saved me a lot of time - actually I cannot understand all that trouble about unsafety that occurred later on. I hope we will have Automatix for Dapper, too. It is definitely a befinit for Ubuntu.

    I have had no problems with automatix and certainly I wouldn't be using Linux if it wasn't for Automatix.....I just should have shut my mouth (fingers) in the thread linked above, but Arnie did a great job, so it was worth me getting slammed..

    I've never used it, and after seeing how the author reacts to justified technical criticism in those threads I certainly never will.

    Yes, there are other "havnt used it" options, but those are not general. I havnt used it Not because of those specific reasons.

    It's a great application. I did most of the stuff i needed to the hardware before even trying out automatix for a few things.. but it seems like one nifty app. I quite like it.
