Ubuntu 7.10 – available

Today is the official release of Ubuntu – version 7.10 (code name Gutsy Gibbon).

What is Ubuntu: Ubuntu is a community developed, Linux-based operating system that is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It contains all the applications you need – a web browser, presentation, document and spreadsheet software, instant messaging and much more. Ubuntu is free software.

I am using Ubuntu from one year and a half /summer of 2006/ and I could say that nothing could bring me back to Microsoft Windows. It was “strange” in first 2-3 months and I had spontaneous wishes to turn it off, but after that you get used to it and become quite nice. I didn’t log-in in my Windows from at least 6-7 months.

Ubuntu 7.10I realize that I am speaking like addicted to drugs which get heeled, but this is the truth – I like that OS.

This again convinced me that everything is a matter how long are you using it. This thesis I mention in the comments of that Article – no matter what is it, an old tool, vi, vim, PE /never use it/, framework or Operating system the best one is this which you know best. That’s it!
