Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Edubuntu, Mythbuntu, Ubuntu Studio, JeOS, desktop, server, alternate, PC (Intel x86), 64-bit PC (AMD64), KDE4... One could easily feel lost with the incredible number of Ubuntu versions. If you do not know which one you should install, Linux Identity Starter will summarize them in order for you to serenely make your choice.
This magazine comes with two multi-boot DVDs (for 32-bit and 64-bit architectures) containing four versions of Ubuntu :
Which version of Ubuntu is meant for your computer? The 32-bit version, on the first DVD you received with this magazine, can be put on any kind of computer. On the other hand, the second DVD provides a 64-bit version, which is suited for newer computers with a 64-bit processor. If you have this kind of system, and if you want to use its capacity to the fullest extent, the 64-bit version is a good choice. But if you're not absolutely sure about the kind of processor found in your computer, don't hesitate to install the 32-bit flavour of Ubuntu. It's the safest choice, and it's assured to run correctly.
We tried in this Linux Identity Starter magazine to present Ubuntu 8.04 as simply and comprehensively as possible and, above all, in a way any reader – be it a complete newbie or a long time adept of GNU/Linux – could appreciate browsing through the following articles.
