I just made a small video of my desktop showing some of the great effects a Ubuntu desktop can do.
I had to record it with half of the resolution, this way it doesn't get too slow because recording the 3D effects consumes a lot of resources of my PC but you can still see 360-hq on it...


What you think?

Windows is much superior.. and you have to pay for it. Who wants something thats looks that good for free??? Definately not me Laughing

I had Ubuntu for a while, i like the way you can spin it to a different desktop. The only reason i stopped using it was because of program compatability issues i was having, apart from that it was great.

Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

As for the compatibility issue I think thats part of the past now, pretty much all the important stuff seens to work with codeweavers Wine and Crossover the only thing I need from Windows now is to run Autocad 2010 and Flight Simulator X.

I have just sorted out my second computer today (the one i'm using for a mame project that will never get done). I'll install ubuntu on that and have a mess around. I'd heard of wine but compatability wasn't great at that time.

Do you bother with antivirus or firewall? I see there is a driver for Ubuntu to read NTFS drives, suppose it would be advisable to install one if i install that driver?

No you dont, Ubuntu already reads and writes on NTFS drivers by default. (Ubuntu 8.04 or higher)

You definitely dont need an anti-virus and firewall I never used one because it's a very safe system but you can always install firestarter firewall.

I am currently using Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) is in a candidate version and it will be soon released.
