The Ubuntu Experience: Adventure in Motion It occurred to me that I had a decent Dell box sitting in my closet waiting to be used. Presently, it is partitioned to Windows on one drive and Hackintosh OSX on the other. The Hackintosh idea is problematic, since any system update requires one to find new drivers. So I decided to go with Ubuntu. Why not? I'm always whining to my friends about what Apple is doing to their desktop units, so ... right. I have a gorgeous ASUS flatscreen waiting to be used, too. Correct me if I'm wrong, please: I'll be undertasking the monitor, I think, insofar as it has a DVI input, but I'll be using VGA out from the Dell to the Asus VGA in. Meanwhile, there is not much for technical questions, unless someone wants to tell me right now there are no VGA-DVI cables, but I have to get out to the store shortly, anyway. Fun, fun. A new operating system. I'm one of those in-betweeners; I am not a proper techie, but neither am I helpless. This should be ... well, interesting. I would tell you the specs on the Dell box, for instance, but I forget what they are. Will update as this potential disaster progresses.
