Review of Automatix 6.2-1

with copyright patents all over the place. A lot of Linux distributions have been forced to exclude property codecs. The good thing is how ever, the user can download these codecs later. Ubuntu and its derivatives are plagued by this. For a beginner this can be quite a daunting task.

I was amazed at how much easier it made my life. Then I decided to start using the alphas of Dapper Drake. I was saddened that Automatix did not support it then. When Dapper Drake arrived on the scene I install Kubuntu 6.06 LTS and went hunting for Automatix.

I was pleased to see, Automatix now supported Dapper Drake. Automatix has come a long way. When I first used it last year. The script would crash with out warning. In this release I did not have these problems. Installing and keeping Automatix updated is a breeze. Automatix can now install and update by apt, just add the appropriate entry to your /etc/apt/sources.list.
