| # The ability to have a glimpse: With the support of LiveCD, a fanboy can
| actually have a good enough look into the distro if not a full experience. It
| gives a chance to visualize and build a thought for the distro, based on
| one’s preferences and use case.
| # Ease of installation and configuration: You need not be a master of
| terminal windows and an ace of shell commands/scripts to run a mighty Ubuntu
| on your machine. The latest release of the distro has a much faster and
| easier installation wizard. Installing Ubuntu through Windows using Wubi, or
| performing a single or dual boot installation is far more easier than it was
| in the past. You need not bother much about the partitioning act or the swap
| space to make a complete Ubuntu installation.
| # Out of the box support...

| derogatory fashion but just as an attention-getter in the title. Besides,
| there are so many rhyming possibilities. *
| Here is what I want to do. I am going to present "The Noobie Desktop". This
| is, with room for generous variation, the basic desktop I present our new
| Linux Users upon initial install and during our Linux Labs. Let's take a few
| minutes and kick the tires, slam the doors...even take it for a spin. Then we
| can get to the real value of my blog. * *

Out of the mouth of babes: Linux is Better
