Exploring the world of Ubuntu 8.10


If you’ve been around IT for the past few years, you probably already know about Ubuntu. Recently, even casual home users are getting the word. Ubuntu is Linux, and Linux is a safe, secure operating system that is absolutely free. The Ubuntu project is built with the goal of making Linux accessible to everybody – a clear, comfortable desktop system that sets up easily and offers the full range of features available with closed, commercial systems. You won’t find Windows or Mac OS attached to a magazine – like the DVD you see opposite this page. But the cost of the operating system is only the beginning. What else is running on your system? Photoshop? Quicken? An office suite? The price for just these three tools alone could easily be more than US$1000, and later you might spend even more for an upgrade.

  • UBUNTU 8.10 Live Version - Intrepid IBEX (in the LINUX Special 03 issue)

    I must have missed something somewhere. I bought the LINUX Special 03 issue with the UBUNTU DVD in it so that I could try it. My box doesn't see the DVD. Even with the boot sequence set to read the DVD drive first, all that happens is that boot time is extended for the extra seconds the system takes to decide there isn't a DVD to read from. I am running from an older, homebuilt XP system. Does anyone have any suggestions, as I would really like to see UBUNTU on my machine.
    Thanks, Philip at phclark3@verizon.net
