Rolling with Ubuntu

I’m posting this in Ubuntu, while listening to Becoming the Archetype from Rhythmbox Music Box (still getting used to it). Yep, I’ve got my modem working. It is a bit different editing text files to change settings instead of clicking checkboxes like in Windows. I learned how to edit the boot menu in GRUB too, so now Hal boots to Windows XP Pro automatically after 10 seconds and if I choose Ubuntu the additional boot options are included (I need “acpi=off noapic pnpbios=off”). I’ve got a couple things to try next — playing DVDs and setting up an email client.

It is really fun learning a new OS!
