In less than 6 months of using Windows Vista on my brand new VAIO, Vista died one morning and refused to boot because it detected a hardware error. I think Vista is a piece of shit and makes Sony VAIO a shitty piece of hardware. When I finally got hold on a Ubuntu CD and installed on the same machine, it work fine.
So it’s not the hardware fault. And it definitely cannot be me, the user’s fault. And I don’t remember having such problem with Windows XP for the past 5 years.
I love the simple and quick installation of Ubuntu. In fact it take less time than try to re-install Vista using the recovery DVDs.
I decided I will give Ubuntu a try for the next 6 months. It will not going to be easy to switch to Linux after using Microsoft OS for the last 20 years!
