After watching this video a couple of months back, I vowed that I would install Ubuntu in my Laptop this year.
Having a dual boot system, I now have the luxury of running my fav apps like 3ds, aftereffects, OneNote, and Matlab in Windows, while playing around in Linux when I feel bored. They say that Linux has a better power management system for laptops than Windows, so cutting down on my electricity bill was also part of the plan.
So far I only use Ubuntu to browse the web and download torrents, but I already feel like a philanthropic opensource geek with dreams of changing the world into one big smiley altruistic society. You see, the ubuntu community is so helpful and fast I feel like that I’ve been somehow exploited by windows in the past few years.
Plus, the sweet aroma of building a better society in a world filled with patriotic bozos who openly advocate war (killing people) and corruption (stealing money), is kind of refreshing.
P.S. Did you know that Ubuntu means “humanness” in Zulu?
