Feisty Fawn Is Out

If you still haven’t given Linux, particularly Ubuntu, a try, now is the time to do so. Feisty Fawn has just been officially released and it offers better stability, compatibility, and a much better experience than the previous versions, which were already a better experience than Windows of any version.

In line with Ubuntu’s tagline, “Linux for Human Beings”, here is my own list of why you should try out Feisty (and soon after, ditch Windows):

  1. Blogging while Installing FeistyI’m writing my blog WHILE I’m installing Ubuntu. Try doing that with Windows!

  2. Boots way faster. Yeah, you’re Windows boots fast after a fresh install. But a few weeks later, Windows will start to show symptoms of the Windows Half-life.
  3. Non-naggy installer. All questions you’ll need to answer is asked before installation. So you don’t have to wait for it to copy files before it asks you for your timezone, then installs more stuff before asking you about user accounts.
  4. Installs faster. The installation finished and I’m still blogging.
  5. I just booted into Feisty. No need to install device drivers. Just install the OS, and start working or playing.
  6. Surf instantly! No need to set up your network the first time you connect to the Internet. With Windows, you’re prompted several connections when first connecting. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing your using a secure browser, Firefox.
  7. No need to install anti-virus software.
  8. No need to install Office, OpenOffice is already installed by default.
  9. Tens of thousands of software available free from the official repositories. But you can add more repositories if that’s not enough for you. You could also try the Windows method: 1. Search the internet 2. Choose a brand/developer 3. Risk installing potentially dangerous software, sometimes with spyware, adware, and/or viruses.
  10. Unlike Windows Update, updates for Ubuntu comes for ALL SOFTWARE on your computer, not just system updates. That means it updates Open Office, Gimp, Blender, Frozen Bubble, and any other software you may have installed.

So what do you get with Feisty?

  1. Partitioning in the installer is even much easier than last time.
  2. Data Migration from Windows
  3. Easier installation of multimedia codecs.
  4. Better networking
  5. Improved hardware support
  6. Complete customizability
  7. Freedom
  8. It’s still free

Go on, try it out! Go to http://www.ubuntu.com, download a CD image, burn it on a CD, have fun, and finally be free.
