When I had a first glimpse of Ubuntu, I said to myself, why not give it a try. You can run Ubuntu on a live CD without installing it to your drive. My first impression is that it looks nice and it's easier to navigate on the applications installed since it is categorized on the menu. After that, I took the plunge and installed it. Back then, there were tons of bugs that I try to fix it myself. As you can see, when I written my first Ubuntu blog, there were “hacks” to fix the problems in programs. But after 3 years now, bugs were fixed and I can do more with Linux as I'm writing this today.
