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!
