Full Circle

I removed Zorin, and put Ubuntu back on, and I’m sticking with it. Ubuntu version 10.10 Netbook.
I started with Ubuntu, I messed it up trying to install Veetle player. People said I’d probably like Linux Mint better, so I tried it. I didn’t really like it. Then I found Linux Zorin 4 Lite. I tried it, but it seemed like it was missing a lot of stuff, like a search my computer function. And the software manager showed me all these programs that were supposedly installed, but I couldn’t find them. SO I switched back to Ubuntu on my netbook.

All I can say is, don’t be afraid to try it. You can install it from a CD and test it out without changing anything on your computer. Just make the CD, then boot from the CD. After you like it, you can install it on your hard drive, again without changing anything on your Windows. You’ll get a screen when your computer boots up, asking if you want to load Windows or Ubuntu (you can do this for any of the Linux’s)

Linux isn’t Windows. Linux is different, so don’t expect it to be Windows. And Linux is older than Windows… Linux came from Unix, which was created in the 1960’s. It is still around and still a very big and powerful Operating System


As you have been reading, I switched from Windows to Linux Ubuntu on one computer. I got many comments, several who said try Linux Mint. Well, I wanted to re-install Linux so that I could give it a bigger partition (and windows a smaller one), so I installed Mint. I didn’t like it, I didn’t like the way it looked for one thing. I thought it looked better than Ubuntu at first, after a while I didn’t like it, and it made me like Ubuntus look more. Number two, I would install an astronomy program, Stellarium, and then it wasn’t there. I’d install it again, and it just wasn’t there. I can’t explain it. It seemed like it was installing properly. That happened with another program, Penguin Freecell too, I believe. I never spent much time trying to figure out what was going wrong, I just got rid if it.
Then I heard about a Linux program called Zorin Lite. I installed it, and I like it, pretty much. One thing I don’t like, is that it has “enhanced security” which means I have to enter my username and password. I was bitching before about just having to enter my password.
Anyway, I’m testing it now, but I think Zorin will be the one I keep.
