My first Day in Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10

October 19, 2007

18th October 2007: Ubuntu release its new Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10.
I’ve read many posts of Ubuntu users that talks about Ubuntu and the new release. I’m a Debian user and yesterday I’ve decided to switch to Ubuntu because I’ve see that Ubuntu packages are released from many software house.

I’ve download and installed Ubuntu 7.10 on my PC in 30 minutes.
When the system was up and running I’ve see a surprise coming from automatic ATI driver installation: System -> Administration -> Restricted Driver Manager.
