A Quick Date with Ubuntu Linux
A client of mine wanted an enterprise application to be made specifically on Linux platform and specifically Ubuntu. With predominantly Windows exposure when I just searched the Internet for guidance with Ubuntu Linux, I came across a good Virtual Box tool from Sun (now Oracle) called VirtualBox. This is quite similar to Microsoft Virtual PC and the significant catch is that it is free. I just installed it and got Ubuntu Linux got up running. People sometimes say installing Unix/Linux is a true PITA however I think with the evolution of the operating systems and tools, the installation had been a real breeze.
Even this post I am drafting from within the Mozilla Firefox installed in Ubuntu. Please see the Help-About of Firefox for more details.
