I am making a little deal with myself, sort of like a new years resolution but a new release resolution (that was horrible)

I am going to see how long I can go without using any downloaded apps or anything just to see how well I can use Ubuntu out of the box with all my day to day tasks. Cause before being a windows user I was always used to having to install all my programs after a format or fresh install..

but Ubuntu is fully loaded. It has everything you need, so I don't longer need to install all these programs as soon as I install..

But you all probably already do this, I just thought it was cool for myself to do..that and its ..4am here

Also as a side question, What does Ubuntu have to do with Coffee?

this is linux! it's all third party. no actually, we're the AFTER party of the third party.

haha but good luck. idk how long i could do that. especially without having to go install codecs or flash

4am here as well.
I use dropbox instead of Ubuntu one so I can share files with my windows PC.

well at least I got my point across :P I meant programs like Picasa etc that have Windows clients as well. What I should have said is that I am going to use pre installed programs rather than ones I have to go out and get.

Codecs and Flash are going to my only expection though. I need those to browse and watch and listen to thing.
