    iso burn and download

    To download the ubuntu 12.04 it says to have the cd or stick handy, do you have to burn it as you download it?

    i have a 32 bit vist and a 64 bit win 7, it says 32 bit recommended?

    usually you "save" then burn?
    tks

    And that's exactly what to do...

    32 is recommended because it is pretty much guaranteed to work on both 32 and 64 bit machines, whereas 64 bit obviously needs a 64 bit capable machine.

    Sounds like 64 bit is what you want.

    I use the 12.04 64 bit version and have no problems, therefore, I can only recommend it.

    If the machine is 64 bit I would take 64 bit OS.

    %%%%

    If you use CD:
    1. download + save
    2. burn
    3. Install

    If you make installation from USB-stick, I don't know how to make the 2nd step.

    I would say that it depends on the amount of RAM you have installed. For 64 bit system you need minimum 4 GB RAM in your Pc

    you dont need 4Gb ram to use x64.

    x64 can address more RAM than x86 32 bit but it doesnt mean you "need" 4 Gb ram,.

    I am running x64 Fedora right now with 4 windows open including a browser with 8 tabs and a VM running, I am using a total of 2.2GB ram. (though I have 16)

    And I only have 1GB and Ubuntu works fine - 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04 under development. Which I am using now with 2 Libreoffice documents open, Chromium with 3 tabs including streaming a BBC radio program and System Monitor says I am using 78% RAM.

    The minimum memory requirement for Ubuntu 12.10 is 768 MB of memory and 5 GB of disk space for Ubuntu Desktop. Note that some of your system's memory may be unavailable due to being used by the graphics card. If your computer has only the minimum amount of memory, the installation process will take longer than normal; however, it will complete successfully, and the system will perform adequately once installed.

    Re: iso burn and download

    A cousin of mine is trying to get me running ubuntu, i have win 7 toshiba 64 bit c655 laptop, wifi connected through my desktop and linksys router, 4 g ram 320gb hd, only about 10 gb free presently.

    when you use the iso ubuntu, do you fully install or just run from the cd and when you shut down, you close out everything and remove the cd, you are back to windows, is the iso the live cd?

    on the cd live web page, "desktop" is referred to, is that just a general term or does it mean a desktop pc period?

    i think i have a 10.4 or 11 version i was mailed, could i use those?


    what am i missing i have been a member 6 years and still haven't done this?
