Gone were the days of me using mint. It's time for me to test if Ubuntu really is Linux for human beings.
I've used the Elementary Luna Beta- And Mint, but i haven't used Ubuntu. Earlier i installed. Like all my linux installs, the first install failed, so i had to boot the installer again. Took around thirty minutes like always. Nice install time.
I touched on Wubi before, but it lagged so bad i couldn't do anything.
Ubuntu booted up and i was greeted by a rather bland looking login screen
Ah well, not as good as Luna's, but maybe that ugly desktop bg you get had something to do with it.
First thing i did was test the internet, then ran system settings to appearance. Have a new BG until bothered to search for one. Changed the theme to that really bright one, then changed back. I liked the black.
I also made the dock only appear when i moved my mouse to left.
Next thing i did was download the restricted extras from the software centre and DL'ing OpenJDK Java now. Will test minecraft later.
So, what now? What to do? I'm impressed so far by Ubuntu, but what do i do? My OS does seem a bit laggy, but can't find the xubuntu desktop. Any desktops i should get?
