Ubuntu 7.04 is Linux for dummies!
Ubuntu 7.04 is Linux for dummies. I already have the bta of Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn on my notebook for a couple of weeks.

Wireless connection to the internet is easier than ever, with Network Manager in the standard installation.

Also installing multimedia codecs is a cinch now. A few mouseclicks, that is all it takes. Same with installing the factory driver for my video card.

Ubuntu 7.04 robs me of my computer wizard halo, I fear: it is simply far too easy.... :-)

Greetz, Pjotr.
