The Beginning

This would be the beginning of a newly created blog. This blog is basically about my experiences in the linux world. I am a bit new to these operating systems but not that new. I’ve been using linux for a little over six months and have tried a couple of different things. My main operating system is Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10) and i run it on an HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop. It is a few years old but still runs pretty well, allowing me to have Compiz Fusion Desktop Effects on an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M video card, which by many has been considered an annoying card to try and get these effects on. Currently i am trying to get Xubuntu 7.10 to be compatible on all computers as i have installed it on an WD Passport 160 GB external USB hard drive. It took me a while to get the bootloader on the drive but i finally did it. I have tested it on two computers and it has booted up just fine, having a speed equivalent to a normal hard drive in the Xubuntu category. The video card drivers are the only things that scare as the xorg.conf file would have to be reconfigured if the drive finds any hardware that was not present when it was configured. Well, i will constantly be posting my experiences and hope that they can help anyone that happens to come across this blog.
