Feisty Fawn

That’s the name of the next version of Ubuntu Linux. I decided to live dangerously and download and install it. I burned the image from the ISO this afternoon and I liked what I saw from the LiveCD boot. I backed up all my files and decided to give it a whirl. I’m pleasantly surprised that the key pieces of my laptop computer are supported, namely my wireless card and my sound card. I have an Intel 2200 bg internal wireless card. One of the reasons I switched is some of the new features I had read about. Ubuntu is really a very good desktop operating system for anyone looking for an alternative to Microsoft Windows or Macintosh OS X. Ubuntu is free and it well supported. It comes with the latest version of Open Office. I’m sure I’ll write more about Feisty Fawn as I explore the new version.
