ubuntu first impressions

June 5, 2006

I’m writing this on the iBook running an Ubuntu 6.06 live CD. It’s a pretty pleasant experience. The disc worked. Can’t see my own HD at the moment, but we’ll let that pass. Mouse speed, or rather acceleration is a bit dodgy. Can’t use the airport card for some reason either, but never mind that.

I don’t think I’ll be switching though, because it looks like an orange clone of Windows. Desktop icons: “wrong” side. Confusing double menubar things. Strange bar thing at bottom of screen. Window buttons in the “Wrong” place, etc. etc. Distinct lack of expose…

Fun though, I think I’ll be coming back…
