Moving to Linux

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I finally moved to Linux on my desktop. After trying Ubuntu and OpenSUSE, I finally opted for Ubuntu as it has been easier to install software such as Limewire, Google Chrome, Skype and VirtualBox on top of a fresh installation. A word of advice though: Right after a fresh install, launch the auto-update so as to get the latest patches. Failing to do so will make the installation of the previously mentioned software troublesome. Crossover can be used to run windows applications and games on linux.
