PC Magazine Pics Ubuntu

Posted in Linux, ubuntu by microwavebiscuit on August 31, 2007

I just finished reading the September 18th issue of PC Magazine (Mobile Super Guide) and they have an extended section on using Linux. The article has roughly 10 pages devoted to trying out Linux. The distro that they spend most of the time discussing is Ubuntu. The article is very basic and geared towards someone who hasn’t used and/or installed Linux before. My only real complaint about the article is that it misses one of the really nice features of Ubuntu for new users which is the Live CD. Having the ability to boot up a distro and see that all of your hardware works, etc is very comforting to new users. They don’t mention that at all in the article.

Anyway, it’s nice to see Ubuntu getting more good press!
