I use Inkscape, GIMP, VLC, and Audacity a lot; so I was very pleased when I discovered
these come standard in the Software Center. I was also excited when I installed KolourPaint
(an MS Paint clone) for my pixel animations (like my icon).

My computer is 5 years old, so it takes a long time for Windows 7 to download and install updates.
Not the case with Ubuntu, because it's already up to date and even then, they don't take long.

Thanks, Windows is getting bored. I saw that Ubuntu has very good themes/apps to personalize it and i will try it. What version I should install ? 14.04.1 LTS or 14.10 ?

Do 14.04 first, there's no great difference on the desktop versions. You might also like one of the other flavours of the desktop like kubuntu or gnome-ubuntu as these have much better theme control that vanilla ubuntu which has been decreasing it's flexibility for some years now.

Finally ditched windows, and moved to linux. After a lengthy research of linux distros, I found 3 that could fit my needs: Fedora, Mint and Ubuntu. Ubuntu won, it's just so amazing, rarely does a software leave me speechless. Everything works with no issues, it's beautiful, customizable, functional, always new software, fast, light-weight, the list goes on and on... Currently on 14.04. and loving it. I should have moved from windows to ubuntu a long long time ago, was using windows for 10+ years and never even heard of ubuntu.

So often the case. We believe Ubuntu could be of great use to many people if only they were allowed to know about it.

Yeah, that's the saddest fact, most people I know have no idea what is ubuntu and some of them don't even know what's linux. We should spread the word. Fact that I didn't heard about it all this time is mind blowing.

我真的很喜欢这样的事实Ubuntu是如此的强大。然而,该操作系统允许我保留旧电脑的工作。它速度快,易于使用,而且免费。这是迄今为止使用Windows尚未最好的替代选择。非常感谢Linux社区的Ubuntu。 :heart:

:bulletred: I really like the fact Ubuntu is so powerful. Yet this operating system has allowed me to keep an old PC working. It's fast, easy to use, and free. It is by far the best alternative option from using Windows yet. Many thanks to the Linux community for Ubuntu.

I like Ubuntu because I have been using it for many years. It was my solution when I needed an operating system, and I've stuck with it ever since. I love the idea that Ubuntu is fueled on, and every release just gets better and better. The development team knows how to make everything fit and work, unlike windows*. Ubuntu is my go-to OS. The only reason I have my Laptop with windows (don't worry, it duel boots into Ubuntu as well :3 ) is because of some Windows-only programs that Doesn't run well in Wine nor Virtual Box. Other than that, I love everything that Ubuntu offers over anything that windows, or Mac (eeewww) will ever offer.

My laptop is relatively new, so 8 gb RAM. Ubuntu goes like a rocket, no hangings, no blue screen, free software & huge community: Solve any problem is only a matter of few seconds on Google.

In my case, working with vectors since 1994 - began with Corel 4 :D - Inkscape has better vector tools than Corel, Illustrator, Freehand or anything else. Mypaint is perfect for what I do & a lot faster than Corel Painter. Gimp has anything I need for domestic needs, still less powerful than Photoshop - I use it at work -, but I think it's only a matter of time.

No cracking or serials for propietary software, - no viruses! - no computer resources wasted....

The only reason because I keep Windows in the desktop - who has dual boot - is 'cause the wife can't live without Office :P.

It's great to hear from your experiences. I started vectors in Corel too, although I never owned it myself.

Interesting, getting the wife weaned onto LibreOffice can be an important life goal :-D this is why computer partitions break and windows becomes unusable ;-)

I like to use this metaphor:
Imagine the OS is some kind of vile beast ina cage.

MAC Users sit in the stand, safe and sound, and graciously observe while others beat this beast with a stick and feel invigorated and inspired by this.

Windows Users on the other hand, they stand next to this cage which holds our beloved and, still, rather feared, beast. They have a wooden bat and they can beat this beast to all their hearts content. However, at times the beast does manage to give a piece of its mind back at these people. However, the beast is locked in this cage and can rarely do only so much damage. These people have some idea what they are dealing with, but deep down, they don't usually understand and are therefore afraid on some levels at least.

Then, there are our Linux User. The oddball of the village, then one everyone has heard of but seldom ever associate with. Our brave little User opens up the cage, charges in and starts wrestling with the beast, bare handed. The beast is old and strong, and knows many a trick, and our little hero finds themselves often at loss and amidst trouble and confusion. As time goes on, the beast and the User tend to find, if not peace, then at least some sort of... temporary rest, at times blazing in open conflict there and there. Like two great powers, who are somewhat unsure about each other, they circle and spy on each other constantly, staying out of open conflict out of mutual uncertainty and... respect? In time, they may even resort to working together for awhile, even though they both know that a fire might break out any moment and consequently battle would commence.
It is a precarious balance of two forces constantly in motion.


What I'm trying to tell here is the reason why I use Ubuntu, is to learn to see, know and appreciate, even create! what really goes on inside these boxes so central and mundane in modern life. Not too many give a flying damn about this stuff if it works, and when it does not, there is only so much you can do without really understanding what is happening inside the system.
Using computers is more interactive than some would let you to believe; you can only gain so much without giving something of yourself in return.
Open source is a wonderful thing, and we should treat it accordingly - to embrace it with all our mind and soul and might.
Thank you.

I agree with you, except that Ubuntu you are the beast... well we've done our best to turn you into the beast without having to put too much effort into it. ;-)

Linux desktop though is dead, it died years ago. Now we have other operating systems like Ubuntu and Mint which are rocking more than Linux ever did.

And with such stuff happening like Steam expanding on Ubuntu's side, it really will be a blessing. I mean, I know many a folk, myself included, who dualboot Ubuntu/windows only because of gaming. (framerates and optimization, you know)
Also the current direction they've taken on their development has made a few distros, most notably the already mentioned Ubuntu and Mint much much more accessible to people with little to none prior experiences with all the "fancy" stuff, and still, by their very nature, there always remains the possiblity for the 'savvy' folk to go and do whatever they decide with no external limitations from companies such as Microsoft and Apple. They even ship computer with preinstalled Ubuntu nowadays, too, more and more. That's no minor detail here!
We are living interesting times indeed, I cannot even begin to imagine where we'll be in a few years time~!

(Oh and that textwall, it's actually a sort of elaboration of one old metaphor of mine. Seeing the image up there just randomly sprung it to my mind and I could not help but disgorge brutally a piece of my mind for all the good people to witness and be all appalled at my needless and totally uncalled for verbosity D: )

Ubuntu is just too beautiful not to use. You get the customization Windows users expect without the errors and the sense of dedication Mac users are used to without the awful price tag.

I tried Ubuntu first in early 2011 as a WUBI-Installation (Lucid Lynx), because i was afraid to destroy something while re-partitioning my harddisk.... but after some updates of Win7 an/or my anti-virus-program the WUBI-installation won't load anymore... so i removed it.
Yesterday i finally dared it: Installing Ubuntu 11.10 as a "real" installation with re-partitioning of my HD and it installed without problems and works fine and fast. The printer works, the scanner works... Win7 has still its own partition and Ubuntu is now the primary OS on my machine with access to my Win7-files.

I have Ubuntu 12.04 as my sole OS and I love it! No viruses, no stability issues, the only thing I miss is iTunes but you can't have everything.

In the meantime i have updated to 12.04 too. I guess, i will stay with the LTS-versions. Update was almost without troubles. The only problem was the new Login-Screen that started always in 1920x1080 and my older monitor can only handle 1680x1050 so the login-box "disappeared" on the left side of the screen and was invisible for me. But i found this help [link] that solved this little problem.

Upgrading never seems to work out for me, there's always some kind of glitch that carries over but I'm glad you're liking Ubuntu :)

Wonderful news :-) I'm glad you took the plunge. We've heard that anti virus and some other software can kill Ubuntu boots, both Wubi and normal installs are at risk from windows programs over-writing the last sector of the boot area. It's just that Ubuntu's boot manager is more complex than windows and uses up all of the boot area. So be careful out there.

Yes, all this new installed stuff with the GRUB and the Linux terminal-commands is still "rocket science" for me and i would not know what to do if the new boot-system would refuse to work. I just updated the anti-virus-software for the Win7-partition, and fortunately nothing went wrong and both systems still working ;-)
I have still the old PC of my dad here, with old Win-XP on it and not used since 3 years... When i find some time, i will try to remove the old Win-XP completely and to "Ubunturize" it too.

When I installed 11.04, every driver I needed for my laptop came pre-packaged. Installing programs is much easier, Ubuntu (Kubuntu for me, lol) finds everything you need to make a program work before installing. Never have to buy a separate new copy for each computer I install it on. (Unlike Windows 7) :la:

Easy to use, install and configure, it has a big community, it's fast, it has a lot of applications, beautiful an customizable, it doesn't have viruses or something like that and obviously it's free, good and it isn't Windows(LOL), in conclusion Ubuntu is wonderful.

Every piece of software will have vulnerabilities, however there are just significantly *less* viruses, like 100 or so in existence. Whereas Windows has hundreds of thousands of viruses.
