I have been using Linux for some time now and am very satisfied! Although upgrades of Ubuntu is possible online, it really helps when one has his/her own CD. It was refreshing when I heard recently that CeylonLinux was offering the Ubuntu CD free. So now you don’t have to wait for weeks till the CD arrives from overseas nor spend hours online until the OS upgrades. Just visit the CeylonLinux website and the guys there are really helpful!
So why did I make that huge step from Windows to Linux?
Firstly, it’s the assurance of being open-source and free. Secondly, I have the consolation that I am using original software and not those 150 rupee pirates.
If you ask me how the process has been, I would confidently say great, really great. Initially, it takes some time to get the hang of it but at the end of the day, it’s very fruitful. The OS loads in a flash and so do the programs. Gone are the days that I had to stare at the monitor till the programs finally loaded. I mean loading, loading…
The Ubuntu 11.04 interface also looks nice, very nice!
