“Are you running Linux? Looks like you’re running Linux.”

January 21, 2008, 5:04 PM

Yes, as of this writing, the Lappy is officially running Ubuntu Linux. So this is exciting. My Linux experience is presently quite limited. The antiquated computer at the Infoshop runs Ubuntu Linux, and so I’ve gotten some experience there with Linux. Plus I’ve also had some (and by “some” I mean “very little”) experience with the Unix command line, which Linux also uses, both at the Infoshop, and in the Mac OS X training class I went to up in Philly last November. It seems like it’s a pretty good system, and once I figure out how it works, it should serve me well. After all, I’ve learned how to use Mac OS X, so I can figure out Linux. At first glance, Ubuntu Linux kind of reminds me of Mac OS X a little bit.

So yeah, I still have no idea what I’m doing on Linux, but I’ll figure it out. Still, it seems I’ve entered the ranks of computer users who use Linux. Scary…

Web site: The third Linux spoof ad - PC is running Linux, much to Linux's delight.

Song: The Ubuntu Linux startup sound...

Quote: So, yeah, welcome to Linux, I suppose. At least on one of my machines. Compy still runs only Vista, and I am so behind on things right now, I don't know when I'll have the chance to take it offline to do Linux over there...
