My husband and I are new to Ubuntu. We didn't know that there was an Ubuntu CE! We have been testing Ubuntu on our old computer. We like it so much that when we get brand new computers in September we will ask for Ubuntu CE to be installed with no other operating system. We do have a question or two, though. If we want to update or upgrade our Ubuntu CE to a current distro, how do we do that? Right now, we are so new to this, that we will have a computer shop install it for us. I know that at some point we will want to install it ourselves, but the thought of making everything work properly scares us. How do you get a printer to work, or does Ubuntu automatically recognize the printer? How do you get your audio devices to work or does Ubuntu automatically recognize those? Does Ubuntu automatically recognize your mouse and keyboard?
Sorry for all these questions, my husband and I just need to know what we would need to do to upgrade to a new version in the future if we want to do that. Neither one of us know enough about computers to be able to understand how to write commands in the command line and that is what scares us. We need an install that will take care of everything for us, without the need for knowing what commands to write. If it is better to have a professional install it for us, we will do that. Just let us know what you think would be best for our situation!
