Installation done!


Alright, folks, check the timestamp on this post and compare it with the previous one. That's roughly the time it took to install Ubuntu 6.06 onto my hard disk and reboot so I could work on the disk copy instead of the LiveCD.

Man! How slick is that?

Thanks to some foresight in partitioning my previous Ubuntu installation, I managed to save all my configuration settings. Wallpaper, desktop, and other files transferred without a hitch to Dapper Drake.

A cursory look at the main menu shows a couple of new applications: the Alacarte menu editor and the Ekiga Soft Phone. The other staples are still there, of course, but in upgraded form. OpenOffice.org is version 2.0.2 and Firefox is 1.5.0.3.
