The new Ubuntu 13.04 available for download
You know, I like Ubuntu, but I don’t use it nearly enough. Over the years it’s grown to be a very sophisticated operating system that can handle most of today’s hardware. Unfortunately, the app support isn’t want it should be for it to take over the desktop. It’s a great OS for the usual tasks of email, web browsing, writing and 99% of what we do on a day to day basis, but for me it falls short when it comes to photography and graphics apps. And sadly there aren’t nearly enough games for it.
You can always install Window 7 in VirtualBox or VMWare, but that defeats the purpose. I’m sure the tide the changing since Steam is putting it’s weight behind the Unix platform.
Ubuntu 13.04 looks smooth and sweet. I just downloaded my copy and will install into Virtualbox in just a few minutes. The new features look pretty cool. It might try and install it into an old laptop of mine, that would be kind of neat to see.
