Lab Ubuntu 9.04 Experiment #N1

LAB Ubuntu 9.04 Experiment #N1: Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope on Toshiba Satellite M40 So I was going through Ubuntu based Linux Distro and I found and I just loved the look and what it was offering so I decided

My Toshiba M40 configuration:

  • Intel Centrino 1.6GHZ Processor
  • 1512MB RAM
  • 60GB HDD
  • 128MB Nvidia Geforce 6600 Graphic Adapter
  • Intel Wireless 50Mbps Adapter
  • Ethernet and 56Kbps Modem
  • USB 2.0 Ports
  • Firewire Port
  • S-Video Port

Currently I have Ubuntu 8.10 which works let me tell you amazingly awesome. I have virtually reducing windows XP usage to 0% at home but office I have no choise but windows since that is what they run on.

My parents, my brother and my sister they all use windows XP. and complain alot and alot more everyday about how their computer are slowing down.

I have problems with toshiba not being properly supported however works faster that it would when windows XP was on it.

So I am not going to do a clean install instead I am going to upgrade to Jaunty.

now I have just tried it and it is upgrading it disabled my personal sources

downloads have begun. This is what I am always impressed about on linux Distros is that the how fast the updates download and install. I wish they had a web portal to check the current update on my computer it just makes it much better.

ok it took 2 hours to download everything because I was doing it on wireless and it was a slow link something to do with the router.

installation finished and now I am up and running WTF the speed at which gnome is reponding is nice really nice :).

This just made my day ok let me testing things out more throughly I will report it out later
