I just set Ubuntu Linux 5.10 (aka "Breezy Badger" :P) up as a virtual machine on my laptop. Since my laptop has a widescreen, it's a beeyotch to set up these VMs as they don't particularly like my laptop's native screen resolution. So I spent a whole whackload of time Googling the how-tos of getting my screen resolution to show up properly. It didn't help that the stupid Ubuntu site is outdated and pointed me to the WRONG config file. If you're interested, it's /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Next step, I'm gonna blast my Fedora Core 2 desktop with this badboy. I don't even wanna think about what that's gonna be like, given that it took a good day to figure out how to get the blasted network card set up. If Ubuntu is truly a user-friendly Linux as "they" say it is, then I hope it'll be less of a headache.
I must be a geek, because it's 2:13am on a Saturday morning and THIS is how I spend to choose my time. :S To top it all off, I thought it would be fun to mess around with the HTML/CSS template on this site, which of course ate up my time too. :P
