So, the last few days (and in fact, as I type this post…!) I’ve made the jump over to Ubuntu as my primary desktop for working on and some minor gaming (lol minecraft).
It’s actually proved to be quite valid so far; I haven’t been unable to do anything that I’m not normally able to on a Windows PC, short of firing up a game and playing it. Linux currently handles:
- Everything website development related
- Day to day web browsing, media watching etc.
It even lets me access all my iPhone messages and stuff. I’m pretty impressed with ubuntu so far, and I think…that it’s not that far away a day – that a Linux OS may be a viable alternative to Windows. If only for people doing productive work. Valve’s plan to implement Steam at the end of the year does provide some serious incentive for people to more frequently consider Linux their primary OS.
