Re: Share with the community your gutsy install/upgrade experience
I have experience with Gutsy and set it up on a new machine. Absolutely painless but I was aware of how to find codecs through non default repositories. My only problems were with a Lexmark X5150 all-in-one. The printer worked fine, the scanner does not have a Linux driver, so no scanner. I understand that Dell are more Linux aware and they have all-in-ones that do work fully under Linux.
One thing that amazed me was I tried an old ATI Rage graphics card, real ark stuff, expecting it not to run. It was on route to the bin. It just went and so its still in the pc. I think it has a massive 32Mb of video ram on it! I used an AthlonXP 1 GHz cpu running on a fsb of 266 MHz. Runs a treat and you would think it was on a fast architecture machine. It's nearly as quick as my dual core 4200+ rig. I recommend breathing new life into old boxes with Ubuntu, just forget about Compiz for now though.
Itch: Think Hula hoop, positive on top, negative on bottom, roll it. Is it a wave or a particle? Is it a photon? Is a photon a dipole? Are we all made of light!
