Unity Is Ok

| Comments

During my quest to find the perfect Linux distribution I must admit I came to like Ubuntu. Sorry RMS, but I think Ubuntu is quite OK.

Here’s why.

  • Easy dual monitor setup
  • Easy printer and scanner installation
  • Eyecandy
  • PPA
  • Sound works out of the box
  • Unity is keyboard friendly
  • You can turn off the ‘include online search results in the Dash

The Dash by the way makes me very productive. Just hit the superkey and the first character of the application you want to start. This means there’s no need to configure keyboard shortcuts. Hell, there’s no need to configure anything at all. It works and the defaults are good. I’m in productive mode right away.
