Anyone using Ubuntu 7.04? Heard its the best Linux OS so far

New postby Joe » 03 May 2007 13:39

I have read many articles on the web saying that Ubuntu 7.04 can be a 'replacement' for Windows Vista! Wow! :shock: That's amazing considering the fact that its free. I donwloaded it (699Mb) from the official site and going to burn to DVD. I will try to do a dual-boot (my system already has XP and Vista). Anyone else using it or have anything to say about it?

i have been using ubuntu for awhile now and i believe its the best linux distribution for home users.

I havent upgraded to 7 yet, i am still using ubuntu 6. However , since I need to use windows more than ubuntu, I keep my ubuntu in a virtual machine and fire it up when required.

I have another 2 more machines which are really old. Those computers use ubuntu as their main operating system. But those machines dont have screens, so its all CLI.

I too recommend ubuntu.

I can't believe it! I'm sending this reply with Ubuntu 7.04 ! It's an amazing OS. I really love it. It's very responsive and is easy on the eyes. Furthermore, it's incredibly stable. :D

you need to set your virtual machine to VGA mode only until you have installed virtual machine tools. Once you have installed virtual machine tools, then you can change the resolution back to normal.

If your having difficulties, then try downloading vmplayer images instead. VMPlayer doesnt have this limitation.

which version of virtual PC are you using ?

i have successfully installed ubuntu 6 on virtual PC 2007 without any flaws. You have to install virtual machine additions before you can set the resolution back to normal.

What is the error message you are getting when you install the virtual machine additions ? . .the screen should not be blank ..

did you set virtual PC to use VGA only ?

Something else might be wrong. What is your virtual machine settings ? . post a description here. There could be a crash preventing the VM from starting.
