Γράμμα από τον κ. Μπιλ Γκέιτς #2

Μιλήσαμε πρόσφατα για ένα γράμμα από τον κ. Γκέιτς για να προστεθούν χαρακτηριστικά στα έγγραφα γραφείου που να κάνουν δύσκολη τη πρόσβαση από τρίτους κατασκευαστές.

Ολοκλήρωσα πριν λίγο την εγκατάσταση του Ubuntu 8.04 (έκδοση 64bit). Περιγράφω παρακάτω τις επιλογές που έκανα και τα τυχόν προβλήματα που αντιμετώπισα. Αν και είχα Ubuntu 7.10, επέλεξα να κάνω εγκατάσταση από την αρχή, διότι έχω κάνει τόσες αλλαγές στο σύστημα που είναι πολύ πιθανό η αναβάθμιση να μη λειτουργήσει. Ωστόσο, ο πιο σημαντικός λόγος …
