    "Simple, fast and clean."

    September 14, 2010  |   By Ceridor

    Version: Ubuntu 10.04.1

    Pros

    Installation was quick and very simple, dected my other OS and configure Grub2 accordingly.
    Detected all hardware, configuring them automatically.
    Comes with most of the software you need for normal usage pre-installed.
    Beautiful, customizable UI.

    Cons

    Playing of most videos, MP3 and such require extra packages to be installed.
    Limited gaming, though this is due to manufacturers, not linux.

    Summary

    Installation was quick and simple, making dual booting OS a snap for even the least experienced user. All hardware for my system, even the wifi card, was detected and install automatically (excapt the video card, but that is quickly fixed when apt-get runs it's update and asks if you want to install them). Came with OpenOffice productivity suite pre-installed, as well as media players and other useful software like Empathy and Evolution. The Software Center is probably going to be the trump card Ubuntu has over other linux distros, since it makes installing and removing software overly simple. The community behind Ubuntu is fairly large and friendly, answering any question you might have in detail in a timely manner. The UI is not unlike that of other OS's you might have tried, with panels at the top and bottom. Compiz offers terrific and entertaining effects for the desktop, and installing the emerald theme manager offered wonderful themes made by other users. Bottom line: Ubuntu is a terrific OS usable for the most modest of people, but offers complexity for the advanced user. The x64 version has become my main OS.

    "Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS installation corrupted other OS"

    August 24, 2010  |   By bobbo6666

    Version: Ubuntu 10.04.1

    Pros

    As a LiveCD it was quite pretty and loaded w/ apps.

    Cons

    Needing >250meg memory is absurd for a linux OS. Bloated
    Had to abort initial installation since to create larger partition on a dedicated HDD. By that time the settings on other 2 HDD's were changed so that apps in other OS's were disabled.

    Summary

    The Lucid 10.04 OS might be great, never got far enough to use since I spent next three days trying to repair damage to the 4 other OS' that the Lucid installation process crippled.
    Its embedded partition tool, Gparted, altered settings on all enclosed 3 HDD's, even tho I told it to only install Lucid to the 3rd HDD. This impacted my other OS' and eventually required that I repartion the 3rd HDD. The embedded Grub2 bootloader (which I declined during installation) then disabled to access to one Windows system, one legacy Linux system, and routed all calls to the other two Windows systems to only the second. And, this is after I told it from within the installed Lucid OS to update the Grub2 bootloader -- per instructions from the Lucid support staff.
    My entire PC has to be re-installed. Mind, this is the second of two PC's--each of which have multiple OS'. I know how to multi-boot systems. Multi-boots are not easy; but, I ought not to have to deal w/ a new installation that gets all officious and thrashes all the other OS' in the vicinity.
    If I can figure out how to do a manual install that avoids what appears to be a fatally flawed Lucid installation process; I might re-try Ubuntu. However, the prospect of forever defending against perhaps destructive updates is intimidating. I dunno.
