No disruption here

12th November 2008

It was just over a year ago that I gave Linux a go after Windows XP gave me a torrid time of it. Since then, I have been able to work more than happily with it and have picked a few new and useful tricks along the way too. All in all, it has been a good experience and I have been able to resolve most of the issues that I have seen. The various Ubuntu upgrades along the way have been taken in their stride too. Version 7.04 was the first one with 7.10 following on immediately afterwards. 8.04 went in equally seamlessly as┬ádid 8.10. Some may decry what they might perceive as the glacial nature of any changes but the flip-side is that change can cause disruption so my vote is for the more gradual approach, whatever others might think. In line with this, I haven’t noticed too many changes in Ubuntu’s latest release and any that I have seen have been of the pleasant kind. Saying that, it’s so much better than the contortions surrounding Windows upgrades. All in all, Linux is being kind to me and I hope that it stays that way.
