Windows to Linux (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) Migration

I have been a hardcore Linux user from a Server-OS point of view since many years. Have used CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian and Fedora extensively. I have always recommended and used Linux without hesitation since I knew this is one thing that I cannot be wrong about.

One place where I was reluctant to use Linux iswas my Desktop. My PC, Laptop and Work-Laptop running Windows 7. Although I love the simple interface of Windows, now its time that I try to experiment with a Linux Desktop OS. I am sure that within a few weeks, if not days, I would get in love with my decision which I have been postponing since many years now.

I have chosen Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for this purpose. What follows is my transition from Windows to Linux as my primary-Desktop-OS. I will be documenting my journey extensively in the coming few weeks.

Stay tuned!

  2. You might like this combination for Ubuntu 14.04:
    MATE Desktop (fork from GNOME 2.22)
    CompizFusion
    Docky

    I’ve been using that combo (or GNOME 2.22 in place of MATE in Ubuntu 10.04 and older) for a long time, and works really well. I don’t like Unity at all, and GNOME legacy does not have a lot of customizing options, so Mate is an option you might want to look at.
