Operation – Change Operating System

I’m a bit technical – not much just a little bit – and its taken me about a 100 years to finally install a Linux “distro” (see I know the lingo) on to something.

I have an old ATOM N270 netbook running Win XP and frankly its rubbish and probably worthless so I decided to have a go at giving it a boost with Ubuntu.

The were many reasons behind this –

  • I figure being the sort of technical (meh geeky) guy that I am I should have at least one machine with Linux running on it
  • The Netbook wasn’t being used and I hate waste
  • I was curious if it would run better like people say it should
  • I could pick up some cheap netbooks, wipe em and add Linux and my kids could have thier own computers


So here I am blogging and installing Linux… Exciting huh?



This is not the most exciting post of the year; it’s probably the dullest to be honest.

But if you are following my blog you have to take the rough with the smooth.

After spending long into yesterday evening unpacking more flat packed furniture than I care to admit to buying I now have the job of getting a mountain of card board to the tip.

Not very exciting I know, but I have had a long day, at work, followed by visit to the bike shop and then we had a beating at pool tonight. Tomorrow will be more exciting as I am expecting some bike parts in the post!

Cool picture though. Taken with the iPad and tweaked with Snapspeed.
