I have been wanting to try to get back into Linux & BSD for a while now, recently I made the decision to use the spare parts I had laying around to build 2 dedicated systems, one as a server & one as a desktop system which I will be using to learn on.
Currently I have 4 systems running ubuntu:
- Compaq V2570NR - Running Ubuntu 7.04
Custom built Pentium 805D - Dual booting xp & Ubuntu 7.10
Custom built PIII 800mhz for use as a low end server. (Xubuntu)
Custom built P4 Celeron 2.5Ghz for use as the main linux desktop system. (Ubuntu 7.10)
I chose this OS because of its "ease of use" and its massive army of users (support) & so far I haven't been disappointed at all.
I am surprised as to how far linux has come in terms of hardware support, I am also liking the amount of eyecandy thats around these days (beryl & Compiz), so that said lets give this a shot hopefully I will learn a few things that I can share with people I know or just people who happen upon this blog. Enjoy.
