Last night I attempted to install Ubuntu 7.04 on an Acer Ferrari
4000 series laptop. This laptop has lots and lots of whacky hardware in
that has thwarted many a Linux installer in the past. Ubuntu got it all right
first time in about 3 clicks. Wireless, 3D, bluetooth, my odd USB gaming
mouse, the lot. I’m very impressed.
I was on call over the weekend so I spent most my time in the house. Lynda and
I unpacked a couple of boxes and generally tidied up. I did one task I’d been
putting off for days: unsnarling a huge tangle of cables. Oh, and I finally
got the stereo put back together.
