Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu The recently released 10.04 version of Ubuntu is the third Long Term Support (LTS) version Canonical has released. I installed this new version on four of my laptops (2 netbooks, 1 normal laptop, 1 portable desktop replacement), and here's my impression of it.

Several times I have been asked to get someone's existing printer to work with their new Windows laptop ... and they somehow have a lot of trouble believing that their out-of-production printer that still works just fine with their Windows XP desktop just doesn't have any Windows 7 driver made for it, so it won't work with their new laptop.


This is when I tell them they can either pay me for the time spent researching the issue (I don't charge much as I have a day job but it does add up) or they can buy a new printer for ~$40 that has more functionality than their old one and is guaranteed to work with Vista or 7.

So far I've only had one person choose to stick with the old device, and I suspect that is because I wasn't charging him -- it was my barber and I got two month's worth of haircuts for the trouble. ;)

Aww, that explains the haircut on your photo...

(Just kidding, could let that pass on...)

Hehe. Yeah, obviously I'm not Ted Cassidy, but my nickname in high school and at a few past jobs was "Lurch" because of my height and build. I didn't mind, as he was always my favorite character from the show. I figured it would be a good avatar.
