I just installed this.. follow me on Twitter if you wish: @ronshank
Dvorak nails it on this column. But a couple points: I look forward to the day when I read an install review without any minor glitches (yes, they are far and few between – but there’s still work to be done). Secondly, when you take his advice and you hit a snag. Don’t give up.. Buzz me or ask in the Ubuntu forums. You’ll find the answer.. now back to Dvorak’s comments.
I’m tired of dealing with Windows malware, patch Tuesday, and the never-ending deterioration of the OS as it clogs up like a drain in a greasy-spoon restaurant. I can’t take it anymore.
And there’s something else that always bugs me about Windows. I have an iMac that I use at the office, and a few times every month Apple has some patch that it sends out. With few exceptions, each time a patch is installed with the Mac OS, the performance of the machine improves. With Windows, the performance always declines.
I don’t think Microsoft has ever sent out a patch that improved the performance of the machine. Ever.
