Good day all

My appologies if I am being a pain - but I would like for someone who
leaves around jhb central to hook me up with some ubuntu disks.

Thing is I am tired of windows and wanna install a reliable os in my
system. I have used ubuntu before and I liked it.

The problem is my internet connection doesn't allow me to download the
installation and would greatly appreciate if someone can hook me up.

I am willing to pay for it

Thanks
Nikiwe

Hi Quintin

Just out of curiosity, exactly why do think the tick box is more of a
problem than the software center?

I think we might have to swallow our pride in this case, and regard it
as a means to an end; improving the user experience and growing the
market share for Linux. I think Ubuntu is aiming for somewhere in
between Debian and Mint. The difficulty of consuming media in formats
requring "non-free" codecs is likely the most common user complaint with
Ubuntu.
I never said that the tick box was bad, in fact I think it is a great
feature, did I say so in the blog entry?

Cheers.

Q

Regards,
Helge

When you install Maverick, there is a tick box in the installer itself
asking if you want to install the codecs.

See a screenshot here

That is good enough IMO.
