    Question Ubuntu


    I wasn't sure whether to put this in installation or Ubuntu forum so I guessed.

    http://www.osdisc.com/cgi-bin/view.c...untu?ad=google

    I don't know which CD to buy do I have to get the server edition and 6.10 Ubuntu? See downloading the iso took too long and I messed up burning images at the wrong speed.

    That depends on what kind of computer you have. Which CPU is it ?

    For a desktop, you'll need Ubuntu 6.10, but there are 3 different architecture available (Mac, PC, 64 Bits).

    There is one here, but it doesn't cover hard drive partitioning.

    Also, there are a lot of helpful screencasts here.

    If you are new to linux, i reccomend you to get a backup of all your data and then play with the installation as much as you want.I think these types of things require experience more than a tutorial. You may learn how to install without deleting windows partition from a tutorial but there are lots of details there in the installation and i think the only way to learn them is experimenting them.. Good luck.

    Can you be more specific? Downfalls for what, coming from MS Windows? In comparison to other Linux distributions? What kind of work do you plan on doing with it?

    Like compared to MS Windows and other Linux distributions. I mean why Ubuntu for beginners? Does it do we'll for blender and computer graphics?
