Inital impressions of Ubuntu 10.10

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Alright so even though i work in IT, i actually like Windows OS’s for a few reasons.  Granted i’m refering more towards Windows 7, Server 2008, and maybe XP.

However i’m pretty good with Linux, and i use a 2010 MacBook Pro for work, so suffice to say i’ve worked with the major players.  I recently decided to try my hands at doing a ChromeOS build, but to do so they recommend Ubuntu.  I’ve used Ubuntu in the past, but not anytime recently.  I’ve been using Fedora or CentOS, since i’m comfortable with RHEL.

I have to say i’m really really impressed with the new Ubuntu.  I think it actually could make for a very nice Full-Time OS, even for the average user.  Now granted i wouldn’t give it to the extreme novice, but for your average user, especially a power user it works quite well.  They have made it intuitive, and easy to use.  It is “pretty” which is still necessary as most people don’t want something that looks like it’s from the Windows 3.1 era.

I think i’m going to keep it as a VM for a while, yet i think i’m going to try and do as much work in it as possible.  Here’s to nothing…..
