Linux for Human Beings, Even Easier
20.44.48 - Mark
I really like Ubuntu Linux, I've used other linux distros like Fedora and Knompix, unfortunatly even Ubuntu's developers haven't made it easy enough for non-geeks to setup and use enought for it to be functional.
However today I accidentially came across this utility (for Ubuntu) that, while it still doesn't make it as easy as a Mac or Windows, makes it easy to take a default Ubuntu install and make it functional.
The tool is called Automatix, and it automates the process of adding extra applications, drivers, utilities, and codecs.
If you have to install a copy of Ubuntu for something other that a server, go out and get Automatix.
