Definitely not wine related: Xubuntu 20.04 review


This post is for the 1.2 percent of you who come to the blog via Linux

The Wine Curmudgeon has had a long and successful writing career — articles in a variety of major U.S. magazines and newspapers, seven books and chapters in four others, and one of the most successful wine blogs in the cyber-ether. So why this post, linking to a review of the just-released Xubuntu 20.04 operating system?

Because Linux, the $10 wine of the computer world. And it’s posted on DistroWatch, one of the two or three most important Linux sites. Take that, Winestream Media.

So feel free to skip this post if you’re bored with my Linux enthusiasm. I understand. Just smile, and let the rest of us enjoy the moment.

    Ah, another convert. I have been attempting to switch from Windows to Linux for several years. A couple of things recently made it possible to move to Ubuntu Budgie 19.10. First, the support for nVidia graphic cards now works smoothly in Ubuntu. As a multiple-monitor person, this was the big one. Second, I was able to migrate some of my Windows applications to browser-based systems in the cloud. Finally, more and more GUI-based apps are becoming available for Linux, which really helps (I’m fine with command line if I have good instructions).

    I am SO happy to get rid of Windows Bloatware!
