Another Ubuntu convert

by oneafrikan on November 10, 2005

I’m working on a project involving Ubuntu linux and last night I showed a mate Ubuntu for the first time.

Questions ranged from “is this really free?” to “you sure you install software like that?” to “and it took you half an hour to install all of this?” to “what is open source?” to “and it runs on your old P2 450??” to “and they sent you the cd’s for free?” to “and I can save to Word .doc format, right?”…

He was gobsmacked!
I’m glad I could share it with him, as I think he walked away a convert ;-)

Yeah, dude!

I tried the live cd thing like two days ago. Ubuntu is unreal. I was suprised coz like early this year it took me 1-3 weeks to setup fedora core 2, but then again i was creating a pipe through the company firewall… shhhhh!

Can’t wait till I move coz I want to make it a server at home to serve up 2 windows xp machines, wi:fi style.

Word, I am converted!

Yea, was a pretty cool experience. My first time ever, that I’ve seen someone react like that…
