"A Linux version for the mainstream Windows user"

December 06, 2008  |  By blueOrbit

 |  Version: Wubi 8.10

Pros

Easy to setup. Very simple, very fast software. Has everything you'd ever need to surf the internet, check e-mail, and even put together some spreadsheets or documents. It's FREE.

Cons

Setup requires a wee bit of computer knowledge... like knowing what a partition is.

Summary

The learning curve on Ubuntu is really gentle. It's very Windows-like in it's behaviour and layout and very non-Windows like in it's logic. As an example, I wanted to play a video file from my video library, Ubuntu recognized that I didn't have the necessary codecs, went out and found them and asked if I wanted to install them. Wow! Why can't a multi billion dollar corporation do that? The applications written for Ubuntu are top notch; I don't get the feeling that I'm using a slapped-together piece of code that the coders glued together during their free-time. The whole package clearly shows a lot of effort, detail, pride, and hard work by the coders. I can easily see myself ditching Windows completely someday and converting entirely to Ubuntu.

 |  Version: Wubi 8.10

Pros

1. Super easy to install 2. great if you just want to try linux like me 3. easy to uninstall 4. easy to access files from your windows partition

Cons

none tis program is great

Summary

I love it because it's easy to use and great for those who want linux for quick things like web browsing and paper typing. Linux is so quick no lag. But also wubi is great because it allows you to keep windows for more powerful activities.
