GeneralHow good & convenient is Ubuntu these days? Pinmemberswampwiz31-Dec-13 17:42 
I am running Windows 7, and I figure that I will continue to run it until it is no longer supported - and as long as I continue to use my notebook system. Perhaps if Windows 8.x or 9 becomes something decent, I will continue on running Windows.
 
But I have read that a lot of organizations are running Ubuntu now, so I figure that it should have reached a high level of user & installation ease. My idea of an easy system to install is to be able to download the installation package, and then be able to install into a newly formatted disk with no issues - like I was able to do when I very recently did a complete system rebuild (of my Windows 7) from downloading (of course, I had to supply the product key.) Is Ubuntu up to this level yet? I can remember in the mid 90's when I had read that Linux was easy, blah, blah, blah, but in actuality it was pain in the a@@. The one thing that Micro$oft has done quite effectively is create an easily installable package, and with the proper support for any issues.
