So it is 9:40 PM and I started my “Find a Linux distro to install” process. Like many people, I decided to type exactly what I wanted to search into Google. Literally, I typed “Linux Distro Chooser” into Google. Complex and requiring great technical skill, I know.
My next mission was to pick the site that had a description with the least amount of “sketch”. Meaning, I picked the first site in the Google results. I then used my well honed multiple choice skills (ignore the question, pick B) to find my perfect Linux distro match.
After several pages of clicking through, I was presented with a list of Linux distributions that fit my needs and hardware.
See, a nice list, with percents and everything.
So naturally, I do what everyone does with lists.. look at my options and pick the one with the prettiest picture.
For me that distro was Kubuntu. It has a cool sounding name that starts with the same letter as my name.
So I follow the link through to the website to pull the .iso and this pops up.
I have dealt with Drupal before, as it was the platform the website I did data entry for was built on. Needless to say, I hate it. Hey Web Dev with Trev, if you are out there, I hope you burn your toast the next time you make some.
So, to be productive while waiting for Drupal to fix it’s shit, I decided to start a post and rant. In the time this took, the website for Kubuntu has recovered (for now).
So, I downloaded my .iso and am ready to move it onto a USB stick.
I’m debating whether I want to install it now or later, as I would really like to watch some West Wing tonight. I know that if I start this process and fuck it up, I am going to be forced to move upstairs where there is another TV, but it is small 🙁
Well, here I go, we’ll see how long it takes me to install it. If you are reading this, go ahead and time me… it may be a while.
