Back on Ubuntu

Posted on the June 15th, 2009 under Linux,Windows by

About a month ago, I decided to ditch Windows Vista, and move back to Ubuntu. It was kind of a reluctant decision since:

  1. I sometimes develop on Visual Studio which requires Windows
  2. DELL’s  software management is awesome, and one just has to enter your service tag to get a list of driver’s you need, etc.

However, Vista’s sluggish performance and slow boot-up times, became too irritating too bear.

I also have to admit that with my previous UWC laptop, I kind-of had it tuned up as a developer machine, nice-and-fast, great apps, removal of non-essential features. It’s a journey and adventure to rediscover that. Follow my next blog posts as I attempt to retrace those steps, the things they don’t tell you, and stuff I’ve just plain forgotten! Also some of my notes on getting VirtualBox working.
