Ubuntu 7.10 - 10/19/07 01:29 PM

If you dont already know, Ubuntus new OS update came out yesterday (officially anyway).  It looks impressive!  I have desperately tried to find a download, but alas all of the servers are busy!  No hurry I guess.  Has anyone been able to get a copy?  As a switcher, I see myself going from Mac OS to Windows to Linux.  Yeah, I know....if Apple made 10.5 open, I would definitely run that.

Your lucky that this is one of those rare times Ubuntu and Kubuntu released at the same time.  I am personally sick of KDE (until 4 is finally out), but we all have our own flavours.

I am a long time linux user but I much prefer linux on intel machines than PPC. I still use macosx on my iBook.
But you could always download it from bit torrent.

i was able to download the ISO image. took me about 7 hours to download. i didn't realize yesterday was the release date. that might be why i was having such a hard time finding a reliable mirror to download it.

so.... i can't figure out how to get this installed. i have the ISO burned for 7.10 but how do i get my macs to recognize it's an OS? really starting to irratate me. i've looked to the site for help but there is not much about installing it on a mac. i would like to install it on any thing from a beige g3 up to my quad.

If its PPC, put the disc into your dvd or cd drive start up holding the "C" key , follow instructions.

Intel, I think you have to use parallels or Boot Camp. I have never installed it on a Intel mac.

i don't know if i've downloaded the right ISO then. The only download for mac PPC i can find on the site is for Xubuntu 6.04... have they not developed Ubuntu for the PPC yet or something? Really wanting to break into Linux here, and i'm having a hard time.

I was unable to get it to fully install.  Buggy I guess.  I have heard quite a bit on how it really isn't much different than the previous version.  Needless to say, I gave up.  Ill try again when the snow flies.
