I recently installed Leopard and Ubuntu 8.10 on my Macbook.
Although Leopard is excellent, after using it for the past year I have found that I miss Ubuntu, and have wanted an excuse to install it again for a good few months now.
Installing Ubuntu 8.10 took 15 minutes.
I cannot believe how easy it was.
Everything just worked, even wireless!
I couldn’t believe it. The last Ubuntu I used was 7.04, although it wasn’t on a Macbook, I did have to do some â€œconfiguring’ to get everything running smoothly. In my experience, 8.10 is a massive improvement over the previous versions. I’ve had zero problems with it on my machine.
I’ve ditched Apple’s Mail.app in favour of Thunderbird, as I can use the same profile with Leopard and Ubuntu.
I’ll continue to use Leopard for web-related projects, but will now use Ubuntu for everything else.
For everything else: Ubuntu.
