Quite nice too.

And it's free, which I like.

Only running the trial at the moment, but I'm gonna do a full install soon and see how that goes.

Have you ever used Ubuntu before?

Yup. Got Jaunty loaded on an old laptop for the kids to use. Seems safer than Windoze for that.

Jaunty (9.04) is a bit quicker than XP

Can't really say with 10 yet as I'm running the off the CD for now

The laptop is running a Broadcom based card. It was a bit of a cow to get going, but nice and stable now.

I was sending away for the free Ubuntu disks afew years ago , I think they were sent from Holland .I was amazed at this OS . I installed it onto a spare PC , once finished I was able to connect to the net imediatley , everything was included with the OS .ie firefox etc , there was software for listening to mp3's ,viewing photos etc and no other software was required , all the drivers were included . No anti-virus software was needed either .
Right you cannot run your Windows software , but this is ideal for quickly browsing the net without worrying about malware/spyware/virus's.
