Chris over at Carnifex is boit of a Linux geek and an Ubuntu fan so when I needed a Linux distro for some testing I am doing (contracting at my old job) I decided "What the hey I'll give Ubuntu a try - I haven't used it since version 7".
Downloaded it - first issue, The .iso was bad.
Downloaded again from a different mirror worked OK this time.
Installation was easy and took about 10 minutes.
Rebooted and was ready to go, NOT!!!
USB keyboards apparently crash Ubuntu. Since I am testing usb devices which include a composite keyboard / mouse that makes it a bit of a no go.
From what I can see before the crash it looks pretty, so I will give it a plus there. Other than that it isn't going to cut it.
(Actually this has been an ongoing problem with Linux USB implementations for years but I was hoping that with all the hype about Ubuntu being desktop ready I would get lucky this time)
