Is that the hangover from the Windows or is it Ubuntu's doing?
So I do all the main domestic chores I need to make myself at home:
- download the latest version of Firefox + install my preferred add ons and extensions
- download the programs I need for everyday, especially the audio editor -- Audacity
- check out any other Linux programs that come with the territory
Tomorrow I pick up --what seemed to be a good book on Ubuntu by by Siobhan Loftus, (Quartet Books, 2002) and study up on the generous ebook -- The Ubuntu Linux Bible
At some stage I need to work out how to upgrade this version of Ubuntu --6.06 to later releases (I think there has been at least one and likley another soon).
Voila! What you do is go to Ubuntu/Admin and click on Update .. and now 127 packages are being automatically downloaded to bring me and my Ubuntu up to stream.
