    Thumbs up Free Ubuntu CD - Free Shipping

    Hi all,

    Do you want to try Ubuntu in your PC/laptop? But don’t have the CD at home?

    Don’t worry…

    You can get those original, more attractive, pressed CD(s) for free, even without paying the shipping charges.

    Here’s what one has to do.

    1. Go to launchpad.net and register yourself.
    2. Go to ShipitUbuntu and enter the details.
    3. Just wait for a week or two! (Without patience, nothing works :-)

    Any doubts??? Contact me.

    I got the CDs in 10 days.

    Kind Regards,
    Pothi Kalimuthu.

    yes you can get ubuntu cd shipped free of charge but i will really not advice to use ubuntu without basic knowledge of linux. one can not enjoy working on ubuntu till the time person is comfortable with linux and commands as there are lot of applications which run on commands only and to update ubuntu you need to go to terminal and even to connect a DUN you need terminal

    I agree Eddy thats the best thing in ubuntu, you can work on OS without installing it on system means you can run it using disc

    I have tried. But did't complete the installation. First you download a small program and that program will download and install Ubundu. They say it can be used like a windows application ad work like Ubuntu. The requirements are 256 mb RAM, 5 GB hard disk and Windows 98/2000/XP/Vista.

    This is how the program screen looks like.



    BTW. itsmemad they also provide torrent downloads for Ubuntu.

    There are a lot many applications provide by the Ubuntu community for programmers,students,project managers...
    One thing i would suggest is please make sure u have a internet connection b4 installing a Ubuntu on your system if are new to it. Having internet makes it easier to install the soft-wares if you are new to Linux..

    The main difference is server edition doesn't have a GUI!. Everything should be done in terminals.

    Wubi is a real installation, the only difference is that Ubuntu is installed within a file as opposed to being installed within its own partition. Thus we spare you the trouble of creating a free partition for Ubuntu.

    ^^AFAIK its not available any more. Got two versions when it was available long time back though. Even got a Netbeans CD from Sun.

    To run linux inside windows you can also use andlinux
    andLinux.org -- Run Linux natively inside Windows
    This version of linux runs natively inside windows. You just need to install it like any other software. Some settings and you are done! Great for learners, who don't want to completely switch to linux, but learn *nix like OSs.
