On Ubuntu

29 October, 2008

After a few days of using Ubuntu, I’m starting to get the hang of it.

Installing new programs is much easier. Want a movie editor? <clicky-clicky> movie editing. Want a touchtyping tutor? <clicky-clicky> fff jjj fj fj. Want C++ in Eclipse? <clicky-clicky> tutorial preparation. Ooo, look, a Mandelbrot viewer? <clicky-clicky> ooo pretty.

I am not so clear on the how and why of all this. This bothers me and I will be off to read up on packages and repositories and the mysteries of the apt-get incantation.

So far, so good.
