After only few days from the release of Ubuntu 7.10, the pendrivelinux.com has released the new manual to install this new version of the famous Linux distro on a USB key and we have posted a short but effective review about this new manual on our Linux Page (in Spanish). As usual the instruction contained on the site are very clear and simple to follow. We have been able to create our Ubuntu 7.10 Key in less than 40 minutes and without any particular problem. Unfortunately, we were not able to save the changes we had made to personalize our USB key but we really enjoy the possibilities offered by a so powerful OS as Ubuntu (if someone knows how to save the changes, please, post a comment – Thanks). Strongly recommended!
Today, in our Linux page we have posted a brief review about Wubi: a simple and effective Ubuntu installer for Windows users. With just few clicks you can easily install Ubuntu without modifying the partitions on your pc (for this reason there are no -or very low- risks of “fatal errors” for your computer). All the Ubuntu files are stored in just a single folder so it is very simple to uninstall Ubuntu if you decide not to use it anymore. In few words, Wubi allows Linux beginners to try all the positive features of Ubuntu without risking undesirable secondary effects. Recommended!
Yesterday a new version of Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn 7.04) has been released. This new version seems to be more powerful and enjoyable than the 6.10 and we hope it will actively contribute to spread the use of Linux. For people using Ubuntu 6.10, Ubuntu released simple and brief instructions to upgrade fast the OS.
In our Linux Page, we posted a brief tutorial about solving problems generated by an Ubuntu upgrade (this kind of problems is not common but unfortunately sometimes it happens..). The post, inspired some Italian blogs we found on the web, is very simple and effective and we hope it could be useful… in case of emergency. See you soon!
The new 7.04 beta version of Ubuntu was recently released. In few weeks (or less) we will enjoy the new final version which seems to have some new interesting features. The Ubuntu Feisty Fawn version has a new codec wizard to install codecs, a powerful plug and play network sharing function which will be very useful for the evolute home networks where multimedia files are shared in shared external hard disks. In our Linux Page we posted a brief note about the new UbuntuUMA) Migration Assistant (which allows you to import Internet Explorer bookmarks, Firefox favourites, desktop wallpaper, AOL IM contacts, and Yahoo IM contacts directly from your installed Windows OS. I am sure that, in the near future, UMA will be one of the most interesting Ubuntu features for people who want to run a dual-boot system.
