Beat this: I came into campus and downloaded Ubuntu AMD64 alternate install CD in two minutes and installed it to this HP 6930p in 15 minutes.
I have never ever seen this easy and fast installation procedure, it's something which makes me speechless. Now I have complete new operating system in my HP laptop and everything looks very well polished.
I don't know where to start, since this new Firefox 3.0.9 is so good looking, networking works like a charm between wireless and wired ethernet and most amazing thing was speed of boot process! Never seen like that before. Now I am backing up my other laptop directories to USB drive and soon upgrade that also!
