In a previous post, I complained about the laptop I've been using for the last 3 years. a Lenovo R400, Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM that ran extremely slow on Windows 7 . Excel and Visio 2010 was enough to make this thing hang.
I am finally due for an upgrade, and we were offered to buy our current for R1200. All of a sudden, this slow laptop turned into a goo deal. One day later, I am happy to say this machine is flying.
I downloaded Ubuntu 13.04, but did not have a USB or CD to burn the ISO onto. Using DriveDroid on my Galaxy Tab 10.1, I could boot into the ISO and install Ubuntu.
I have not been on Ubuntu for 3 years....I dont recognise this window manager!
