When I went to purchase a laptop on Dec 25th 2011, I opted to take the laptop with MS-DOS, because it reduces the cost by 4000 bucks. When the vendor asked me whether I would like to go with Ubuntu 10.10 for the time being till I install Windows, I just nodded.
To my surprise, by the time billing is over, my laptop is ready with Ubuntu 10.10 installed in it. Amazingly, fast! Isn't it?
The moment any one says Linux, the only thing comes to our mind is:command line. Ubuntu 10.04 version has changed my mindset. Its more intuitive than windows. Its more user-friendly yet efficient in terms of networking speed, processing speed, and more secure.
