This is my third time running Ubuntu on my PC. My first time running Ubuntu was in 2007. It was just from a test disk because I still needed to use lots of graphics software such as Adobe Suites and 3D Studio Max.
The second Linux is Jolicloud, which I installed on my netbook in 2010. Finally in year 2011, I have the confidence to try Ubuntu on my primary machine.
Why I changed to Ubuntu?
- Because I use my computer mainly for internet, blog, social networking and a little bit of website design and coding.
- My PC is an old one. Its not compatible with Windows 7.
- I want a new feel on this old machine.
- I’m sick of getting Windows-targeted viruses, worms, malware and the like.
Even though I’m running Ubuntu, I still have Windows XP to run alongside. I just can’t figure out how to run Photoshop on Ubuntu.
I’ll continue in my next post to share with you why I prefer Ubuntu over Windows.
If you have tried Ubuntu, please share with me your experience in the comment section below.
