Installing Ubuntu

I got an Ubuntu DVD sent to me right from Ubuntu.

Since I had a half forgetten 'experience' of installing linux in the past, I assumed I should be 'very careful' while installing linux since I thought I should not make wrong choices.

So started 'planning' before installing. I studied from internet regarding
1. the partitions that I need to make
2. size and filesystems for partitions etc.

All my preparations went waste I should say.

Installing ubuntu was incredibly easier. All you have to do is just to make your system boot with the Ubuntu CD. Thats it. Ubuntu takes care of the installation. All you have to do is just watch the screen for a few mins and give your (very few) decisions then and there. It was easier than installing Ms Windows. Writing this post with Ubuntu - firefox.

Thank you Ubuntu Teams.

Will write more on my experience with Ubuntu - the 'linux for human beings'.
