Even after more than a month, the Ubuntu Linux CDs that I requested did not arrive. But that did not deter me from trying it. After dropping plans to download Ubuntu, I found a person in the local LUG who could lend me his copy (thanks Praveen!).

So I finally installed it last week. The quick installation without any package selection did not surprise me. I was prepared for it. But what really took me by surprise was the very limited packages that came on the CD. Well, one CD can hold only that much and selected packages where quite right for a novice desktop system.

Ubuntu has alien installed by default and it save my day. I was able to install mplayer, xmms and TeX from the Redhat 9.0 CD.

I wish the Ubuntu team all the success.

Came across Ubuntu Linux project, following a post on Slashdot. This guy Mark Shuttleworth is doing a great job in seeding worthy free software projects. It is noteworthy to mention that he was one of the first space tourists.

Ordered 10 Ubuntu Linux CDs from the website. People in Chennai, please free to contact me if you need one.

Hello people! This is my first attempt to maintain a diary. That too an online one, read by fellow geeks. Expect more soon.

Good bye!
