The Computer Recycling Project at The Working Centre is happy to announce we now have Xubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver available on our PXE network installer. If you're in the Kitchener/Waterloo area and need Xubuntu installed, please feel free to drop by. This form of installation is particularly useful for those who don't have a DVD drive. We've also got older images, including some that work with Pentium M-based architecture.
I've been running Ubuntu 18.04 for a little while on my main desktop computer. I really haven't had any issues with it except for the constant running out of space on the SSD when ripping Blu-ray media (Ubuntu was installed on a 120GB SSD). Here are the steps I've taken so far after installing Ubuntu 16.04:
Update the system
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
I then plugged back in my 1TB hard drive. Windows 10 lives on that drive. I booted Ubuntu and updated grub so it would recognize the Windows partitions on the drive:
I recently changed up my desktop system at work for an almost "stock" Gateway DX4860-EF11P (I changed the graphics card). The system I had prior was overkill for what I use my desktop for and was better suited as a server (it had 32GB of RAM). The Gateway is powered by a Core i5 processor and is powerful in its own right. The exact specs are:
Processor: Intel Core i5-2320 @ 3.30GHz (4 Cores)
Motherboard: Gateway IPISB-VR v1.01
Disk: 500GB Western Digital WD5000AAKX-7 + 250GB Portable
Graphics: NVIDIA Quadro K2000 2048MB (954/2000MHz)
I'm a torrent kind of guy. Torrenting makes a lot of sense for distribution of Linux distributions, share the load among torrenters so the servers don't have to work as hard. It frustrates me a bit when I can't find a torrent for a particular Linux distribution. I'm a bit puzzled as to why a project as big as the Fedora Linux project wouldn't mention Torrent links below their download section. Does the project think it's going to make Red Hat look bad?
