My previous post was not explicit. I achieved success in installing Ubuntu Linux on my Acer netbook. Ubuntu told me so. However, when I followed the instruction to restart, well, that was another matter. Sure you can install Ubuntu but do you now expect that it will boot up? This is Ubuntu, where failure is constant, perpetual, eternal.
Upon restarting I pulled out the Sandisk flash drive, lest the Acer try to boot from that. Silly me. After many varied attempts, I could not get the Acer to boot from anything, no matter how many variations I tried on boot sequence that should not matter. My Acer appears to be, if not brain dead, then at least in a coma.
Ah, Ubuntu. What's the deal? Obviously, I am not a system person. However, Ubuntu is supposed to be the operating system of the masses, the downtrodden, the poor, the ignorant. Hey, I must be ignorant if for no other reason I keep trying it. It's like an abusive relationship. I am battered.
Could Ubuntu suck more? If so, please explain.
Ah, F12 let me boot from the flash. I'll try installing Ubuntu again. What the heck. It can't get worse.
