One Step Ahead: Ubuntu


The weekend that ends was dedicated to moving to a new system: Ubuntu Studio. Since computer time occupies sometimes +8 hours a day, I thought leaving the old XP was something to look into.

So I dove into this as a complete noob and came out dry. No dual boot, Linux all the way. What came as a great help where the more experienced users on Ubuntu Forums. Their answers came within hours and I received their support all the way.

I now run Ubuntu Studio and, to be honest, have no doubt I will keep this platform for the future.

Here are some links you might want to read if you consider switching:
