Ubuntu version 10.04 Long Term Support released.
So for anyone interested in using linux, Ubuntu's latest Long Term Support release is now available for download. This is by far the most user-friendly linux distribution i know of and is a very good desktop operating system.
Bundled with Ubuntu: Openoffice (word processor, spreadsheet, presentation) Gimp (image manipulation program, like photoshop) firefox web browser VLC (to watch dvds and other)
and there is a whole host of software available and it won't cost you a cent! All you need to do is use their user-friendly 'software center' application and install it.
the only issue is watching dvds mainly because of the proprietary windows codecs. this is easily solved from the medibuntu site. not to worry, if you have issues with this, give me a holler and i'll give ya a hand.
