Installed Elemetary OS Luna: Beautiful UI and Great Performance

Elementary OS Luna, a Linux distro based on Ubuntu  with very nice and beautiful UI. Its 'iOS-y' nature is so magnificent. It's the third Linux distro that I have installed in my system.

Sine it's Ubuntu based I have to do the first thing that is always done by 98% of Ubuntu after a fresh installation, installing Ubuntu-restricted-extras. Painful though. 

After installing Crunchbang I did not go through restricted extras things, most of these codecs are supported out-of-the-box. 

I was playing around, and the wallpaper below really grabbed my attention.

Here is the default wallpaper for Elementary OS Luna 0.2

Next I installed my favorite music player (MOC Player) and started rocking some great tunes. Can you see the tracks on the playlist? Ah! Khona is always there. :-D

My Quest For Linux (Ubuntu)

Some few weeks ago my interest and love for Linux have increased so much. I made all attempts to get a copy from anyone who uses the same thing here in my community but none of the people I asked have heard of it before. 
But I really want to make that "BIG" switch for now.

So I decided to research about one the Linux distro (Ubuntu) where I came across a lot of useful infos.
I even saw that Ubuntu CD's were once distributed ( Then I remembered I've seen one of the distributed CD's some years back with someone) . 

I found out that to get Ubuntu is either I download it OR buy the DVD 
(NB: The operating system is not for sale, it's free, you are only paying for the DVD and shipment not the software). Downloading it here will be quite something for me now.

I quickly came across a message in a forum which was posted some years back. So I decided to contact one of its members. Which he responded to.

I also posted my message in one of LinkedIn's Linux users group. This message attracted a lot of comments.
I even received private messages from people willing to send me the DVD's and others for free. Which have been sent and are yet to reach me.

I started reading and practicing some commands and other things about Linux online until I received the first DVD sent by John from USA recently. 

My Day 1 Experience with Linux (Ubuntu) coming soon now here
