After months of inactivity, I updated my Linux installation from Ubuntu 7 to 8 and boy, what a difference.
My experience with 7 was kind of disappointing at the time. I couldn’t make my bluetooth mouse and keyboard to work, the dual monitor didn’t work and these were enough for me to say goodbye to it. This time, after updating and making a couple of tweaks here and there, and thanks to the expanded Ubuntu forums, everything’s ticking and I’m enjoying my Linux machine for the first time.
The next step though will be setting up ClaimCenter and then benchmarking it with Windows. Hopefully that will work and I will switch completely to Linux.
