I installed Linux!!!

Mmmm… This is great. I finally installed Linux. I was always curious, so when I saw a link on Digg.com for Wubi, I went for it. Wubi made it really easy for me to install Ubuntu Studio, the build of Linux I chose. Somehow Wubi doesn’t make you partition, and allows you to dual boot, which is hot.

My computer has been running for over an hour, which hasn’t happened in a long time, so that makes me hopeful that it will help. I’m really excited, but still kind of confused about installing programs and things like that. My boot time in Windows on this computer is bordering on 8-10 minutes from turn on to opening up a web browser, but in Linux, it’s been cut down to about 2 minutes. That’s definitely an improvement.

Yes, I am a nerd.
