The Word of the Day is: Ubuntu
My Dell Mini 9 is on its way and it's coming with Ubuntu Linux pre-installed. And it will stay that way. This is by no means my first foray into the Linux world since I've messed around with multiple distributions dating back to 1994. I've had Arch running as a proxy server to bypass web restrictions on my work PC (Shhhhh). I've run a web server on Mandrake and a file server on Slackware. None of this matters. They were experiments; they were task-centric intellectual games. The key is that this will be my first time using Linux as a primary OS.
What I'm trying to get at is that I'm not a Linux noob, but I am nowhere near a Linux expert or even an upper-level intermediate. Ubuntu is allegedly the Linux distribution for "normal" people, so I figure if I have severe issues so will Ma and Pa Kettle. I will be documenting my (mis)adventures here to let you know how Ubuntu stacks up to my expectations.
