Only Seven More Days to Go!

    Alias Flightless Bird

    On April 29th, the Long Term Support version of Ubuntu will be released,
    a release that Mark Shuttleworth devoted all his time to so that Ubuntu
    will finally shoot Windows out of the proverbial window. Get it at
    http://www.ubuntu.com/ You'll be glad you did.

    What can be done with Ubuntu:

    Email
    Surf the web
    Burn CDs.
    Rip CDs.
    Listen to music.
    Watch vidoes/DVDs.
    Scan and print.
    Spreadsheets.
    Presentations
    Newsgroups.
    HTML editing.
    Games like Chess, Tetris, all kinds of solitaire, etc.
    Make videos.
    Download photos from a camera and organize them.
    Translations.
    Use a dictionary
    Learn how to touch type.
    Edit images.
    Send and receive a fax.
    Take screenshots.
    Create .PDF files.
    Create and use a data base.
    Instant messaging with over 10 different programs in one including
    Windows Live Messenger.
    IRC.
    Bluetooth.

    and much more!

    What you can't do with Ubuntu:

    Worry about:
    WPA, WGA and WAT raising their false positive ugly heads,
    DRM,
    Viruses,
    Root kits,
    Spyware,
    and
    Malware.

    The following isn't important? Please explain how you use Windows and
    don't need to ever:

    Email anyone
    IM anyone
    Surf the Net
    Type a document
    Play a song
    Watch a film

    And a long fucking list of etceteras.

    Do you even think before you post?

    Never said those things are not important. Overall, you can't really do
    important work with Ubuntu. Look at 90% of the businesses out there. They
    want to be productive. They don't use Open Sores Office. They use
    Microsoft Office. Why? So they can get their work done.

    Everyone knows that Ubuntu was written by geeks for geeks who can't get laid
    and have no social skills. That fits you to a T.

    Not the reason.

    Everyone knows this is a lie but that won't stop you from posting it
    over and over again.

    That fits you to a T.

    I am not a geek and I get laid regularly. More lies, what a surprise.

    I think that it has landed already.

    After downloading some more updates today, my beta copy has lost it's
    development emblem and now shows the ubuntu logo and the words 10.04 LTS on
    the login screen.

    You really need a course in reading comprehension. The discussion was
    about the eminent release of the latest Ubuntu offering. Nothing to do
    with you.

    What do you expect from Alias? He has no reasoning abilities. He uses
    Ubuntu!

    Ah, so it is.

    > How do you like it so far?


    Looks good so far. It hasn't had a dispute with my ATI Radeon card this
    time. Nothing broken in the apps that I use. Have added Gimp and KMail.

    I normally use Fedora, but I'm looking for something with longer term
    support.

    Just to balance thing up , I should add that I was sufficiently impressed
    with Windows 7 that I purchased a copy to run on one of my other machines,
    and that I also run Vista and XP.

    It is interesting to note that the "Miller Test" which is the United
    States Supreme Court's for determining whether something is labeled
    obscene, includes three judgments, one of which is whether the subject
    matter, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political,
    and scientific value

    On that basis alias is 30 percent of the way to being an obscene
    subject.
