I had to boot into Windows to get access to files that aren’t mounted to the Ubuntu side of things. I feel…dirty.

While I’m enjoying the quicker Firefox loading times, no browser crashes, and no flash or javascript problems (I’m having issues with these things, but I’m trying to be confident that I can work them out) I don’t miss seeing critical security update required from my antivirus software.

Like legions of people, I’m going to say “screw you, Microsoft” and switch (back) to Linux.

Some of you may remember back in 2001 or 2002 when I tried out RedHat Linux with less-than-stellar results. I ended up breaking my kernel. I couldn’t install anything on my own. My desktop crashed constantly. And so on. In desperation, I went back to Microsoft. But no more! This time I mean it!

I’m going to go with the Ubuntu, which seems like it can do everything I need it to do. This article is a very in-depth and unbiased account of Ubuntu’s usability.

I’m also going to order this book. Should be helpful.
