i’ve continued my forays [1] [2] into the world of Linux distributions and have now tried Ubuntu.

Install works fine. After I figured out that I needed to enter vga=771 to start setup i encountered no further problems. Very straightforward.

linux vga=771

It’s based on Debian Sarge.

Ok, the next thing to do is upgrade to the new WP 1.5… but i’ll leave that for another geek day. The reviews sound very positive.

I’ve updated my blog to WP 1.5.

found a review of Ubuntu at Pro-Linux:

(why do I always find this kind of stuff afterwards?!)
