I got my Ubuntu CDs yesterday deliverd to my door step a month after I had ordered them, and touch wood without any trouble. Although I must salute the postman who delivered these to me in the worst rainfall of the year.
As soon as yoou open the packet you notice that now we dont have 2 seperate CDs (One Live and One Install) but they are now one. You just have to boot up the live cd and then install it from there. The installation was a breeze.
The other good thing is its usability and ease of use. The manuall installation (non synaptic installation) is now so so simple that you will never have to touch the terminal for such trivial stuff. The other thing worth mentioning is the UI. Not a big leap but well and truly now at par with XP and in some cases better than XP.
Now I am waiting for my Kubuntu CDs which I had ordered a week after I had ordered the Ubuntu CDs. Just hope the guys at the customs department dont mess up again.
Here’s the details to get your copy.
Update: I have received my kubuntu and edubuntu cds. The only thing this time around other than a larger packet was that the packet was almost open and there were no ubuntu stickers that came with the ubuntu cds earlier. So at the end the customs did steal my stickers.
