good to know about ubuntu (x-mas time)

Did you know that you could run ubuntu directly from windows? No? Then try out wubi!

And check out the following pages if you already are an interested (k)ubuntu user:

  • Playing DVDs, flash etc was a nightmare under suse 10.1. Under ubuntu > 8.04 it is a one-liner:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

    Taken from here.

  • With VirtualBox you could try out new releases of ubuntu (or other OS’s). I used version 1.6.6 from here – the latest .deb package didn’t work for me.
  • Did you ever want your own customized ubuntu? Yes, the the following pages/projects are for you
  • UCK“is a tool that helps you customizing official Ubuntu Live CDs to your needs. You can add any package to the live system, for example language packs, or applications.” – taken from the website.
  • Very good tutorial to create your customized LiveCD. I tried it – really nice. In this way you can ‘present’ somebody with linux software 😉

Hope you have other ideas/pages for ubuntu and x-mas!
