View Full Version : [ubuntu] Great operating system!

April 10th, 2011, 05:07 PM
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my old Acer 7520 (after struggling with windoze vista and 7 for too long) and I'd just like to say what a pleasant and error free experience it was.

I've installed the new NVidia drivers and the display is crisp, the network setup was sooo easy, wireless printing for my Canon MP560 a cinch and the sound wheel now works perfectly.
What a great operating experience!

I'm contemplating installing Firecracker and looking through the free software, but at the moment I'm very happy with my laptop.

Congrats x2, for one switching to ubuntu, and 2 making everything install clean and effective on an acer lol. I'm using an old aspire 5515 and it was a less than desirable process. I will say it runs like a dream now though. Welcome to Ubuntu, if you need help don't be afraid to ask.

Hi and welcome to the forums

Glad to hear everything went well for you. It sounds like you did some homework before installing.
