I've tried other countdown timers in UBUNTU and none of them have the
ease of use that this one
has.  You can't know this unless you actually try it.   If you do, you
may get sound because  your UBUNTU may have something that mine lacks.


I have this timer in Windows XP and sound is perfect but I prefer to
operate in UBUNTU.

I'm not sure whether the sound is provided on line along with the
coundown and my computer lacks the software to get it or if the sound
comes from some where in the UNUNTU installation.
