Ubuntu 14.04

Ubuntu 14.04I have just installed Ubuntu 14.04.4 on my Dell Studio 1558. The 64 bit version is accessing the 6 GB of ram and the graphics are very impressive. Ubuntu doesn’t come preloaded with everything you need as Linux Mint does but it was very quick to install my favourites – Gimp, Brasero, Miro , Shutter, Chrome, Banshee, Anagramarama. I checked if it had the partition manager GParted and it does. I use Thunderbird as my email client. I had it all up and running in about 20 minutes. At the moment it is not running Me TV properly so I shall have to sort that out. It is also better to use Chrome to view e-cards and things like that, plus Chrome has all my bookmarks and so I can quickly set myself up on another computer. Ubuntu is more like the Apple set up with a menu where you search for whatever you want as you do with Spotlight in Apple. The unity desktop is very clean and well organised. The menu i you to access whatever you need on your computer or the web very quickly. Ubuntu has a real interest in education and educational resources as well and it will be interesting to follow some of that up. It’s a while since I have been on Ubuntu. It was the first version of Linux I tried and then I swapped to Linux Mint. This new Ubuntu has a really nice interface and is very efficient. I am liking it a lot.
