Mom’s Dell Lappy is running Kubuntu Gusty with NO HICCUPS!!! It’s even connecting to my WPA protected wireless network like a champ! I’m so excited to get my mom running a Linux distro… she’s going to be so much happier… now, just got to get her a new battery!!

well… I took a Kubuntu 7.10 (Alt) install disk up to Redding over Thanksgiving and installed it on mom’s laptop… install went fine (it’s a Dell Inspiron notebook) but the Broadcom wireless card is giving me fits… i ended up bringing the lappy home from Cali with me and I promised to have it ship-shape by the time I get back there at Christmas…
I’m taking suggestions for other distro’s, tho… if anyone has any thoughts… basically, I want to have a KDE desktop (for ease of use and familiar feel) but, I don’t anticipate them needing to upgrade/install apps so, K/X/Ubuntu’s package management sys is not such a huge selling point… the lappy has a 2ghz celleron but is really short on RAM…

I just had to share this. My mom was in town about a month ago and we went to Fashion Show Mall. Here’s a picture she took of me and Fish at the Apple Store! (btw, Mac’s rule and Vista drools!)
I am testing Kubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon right now to see if I can switch over the parental laptop! I’ll keep y’all posted on how it goes. (that y’all was for you, Andi!!!)
