UBUNTU For Acer Aspire 4330

There is really no doubt that UBUNTU is one of the best operating system that I have used. I've been using computer for about 10 years now. I have used Windows 95, 98, 2000, Me, and XP. I also have tried Fedora, Ubuntu, and Novell in 2004.

Today, I am now using UBUNTU 8.04 Hardy Heron on my laptop ACER ASPIRE 4330. And it is really great in comparison with XP. There are things that I really love with Ubuntu Linux. Not only that I love its philosophy, I also love the software that comes with it.

In my previous article, I pointed out that UBUNTU have improved much since the time that I first used it. And today, I am very happy and satisfied that I am using UBUNTU.

Here are some staggering advantage in using this great operating system:
1.It is completely free, including the upgrades.
2.It is virus free.
3.The UBUNTU Support forum is just REALLY GREAT, the BEST forum I ever entered.
4.UBUNTU now is a lot easier to use. Though still not as easy as windows, but it is more like it now compared to what it was 4 years ago.
5.Literally speaking, if we are only talking about office works and web development, I think that it is already 90% capable to do the work as what windows can. In fact, in some cases, it is far better than windows can do.

Here are some few disadvantages:
1.More than half of the world uses Microsoft Windows program. This is why all the programs that you may like in windows, may not completely compatible with Ubuntu Linux like Microsoft games and other window based softwares like Dreamweaver and Adobe Photoshop.
2.Some latest hardwares does not come with Linux support drivers. Though, many hardware manufacturers now have Linux support drivers, there are still few that does not. And this might be a serious problem in running some of your softwares when using Ubuntu Linux.
3.Installation and repairing of system is a little complicated. I will say that it really needs a hands on study. But this is an advantage of Ubuntu at the same time, because even though installation and removing of software programs is a little complicated, it makes it system more stable and easier to recover in comparison to windows. This means that you have to be familiar with the commands, and always in connection with the forum.

So if you are going to ask me which one will I choose; UBUNTU Linux or Windows??? The answer is UBUNTU Linux.

Most of the time I use my computer for office works only and not for games. And fortunately, everything that I need for my office works exists in UBUNTU. So why should I have to stick and pay, when I can get a virus free, and TOTALLY FREE operating system?

My laptop is Acer Aspire 4330. In it is UBUNTU. I must admit though that right now, my video is not working that well because of driver problem. Intel has not yet updated their video drivers. But soon it will. And when it comes, I will completely shift to UBUNTU, and will no longer use windows.
