Learn to use Ubuntu 7.04 (Feisty Fawn)

Posted on April 28, 2007. Filed under: Training, Ubuntu, UNIX |

Hot on the heels of the celebrated 7.04 (Feisty Fawn) release of Ubuntu comes the Unofficial Ubuntu 7.04 Starter Guide, a free online guide to using the Linux distro.

The guide covers a massive range of subjects, everything from updating Ubuntu to mounting Windows partitions to working with various kinds of hardware. I wouldn’t say it’s a particularly novice-friendly reference, as it assumes some basic Linux know-how on your part (like performing command-line operations). But it certainly is comprehensive, so if you’ve just taken the Feisty Fawn plunge, you’ll definitely want to bookmark this guide.

Install and run Ubuntu without disturbing Windows

Posted on January 17, 2007. Filed under: Ubuntu, Windows XP |

Want to take Linux for a spin? Forget partitions, dual-boot setups and live CDs: The new Ubuntu Windows installer lets you run the Linux distro while keeping the rest of your system intact.

In other words, it’s like a live CD without the CD. Just run the installer, which in turn downloads a disk image of Ubuntu (actually, your choice of four Ubuntu distros), and then reboot your PC. Choose the desired boot option from the menu that appears, and presto: You’re running Linux. This is a working prototype, not a finished product, so user beware. It didn’t work on my Vista box (I discovered after the fact that Vista isn’t supported yet), but it ran like a gem on an XP system. Great way to run Ubuntu without the hassles of partitioning or burning a live CD!
