Google Picasa works very well on Ubuntu

Although I find Picasa simple, easy and fun, I'm still looking forward to Shotwell.

Its good to have Options.

Want to give Dell business

I'm so happy Dell made this bold & truthful statement when the 'other' OS is a financial juggernaut, that I want to buy my Ubuntu Tablet from Dell if & when they launch it.

Not Cross Platform

I don’t think Office live works cross platform…

“To use Microsoft Office Live, your computer must meet one of the following requirements:

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8 running on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista. You can download Internet Explorer from the Internet Explorer page.

Mozilla Firefox running on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, or Mac OS X 10.2.x and later. You can download Firefox from the Firefox download page.”

Good thing there are alternatives.

I feel safe with Firefox on Ubuntu.

Here is something interesting:

"Firefox 3.6 has been downloaded…

MS spins IE security disaster into Windows 7 upgrade opportunity

Will have to upgrade to Windows 8 when the next attack occurs

I feel they will ask us to upgrade to Windows 8 when the next attack occurs.

Lets avoid this by using the safe and secure UBUNTU!

Title is very misleading & biased

The title is very misleading & biased. There are several users who did not face problems & are enjoying Karmic K. I can vouch for how good Ubuntu is as I have been using it for more than a year.

Persons who have a flawless install / upgrade are likely not to report it as that is what we expect from Ubuntu and is thus not newsworthy.

Also note, there are rivals who badly hope Ubuntu fails so that they can keep milking their cash-cow OS’s. Therefore, I feel there are several exaggerated or blatantly false accounts posted on the web.

But my friends, "Satyameva Jayate" ( सत्यमेव जयते) = that is Sanskrit for: "Truth Alone Triumphs"
