Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Ubuntu had not only correctly identified the hardware, but even installed working drivers for itall without any help from me! To get it connected, I only had to specify my network name and my WEP key, and off I went.
Next, I actually installed Ubuntu to my hard disk, and started to play with it. The disabled root account takes a little getting used to, but is not too big a deal in the end; the user interface looks clean and beautiful, and its quite clear that Linux is as ready for the desktop as you want it to be.
That leaves one major problem: inertiawhich is, after all, a fundamental Law of Physics. I decided that I would need a little extra help in trying to get comfortable with the system, and in my case, that usually means the good oldperhaps even old-fashioned?tree-ware type of book.
