This is a post coming from inside a ubuntu live environment. Pretty decent, for a live environment. I can surf the web, type papers. The fonts arn’t super pretty, but they are ok. It’s not as great as OSX, or XP really (although it has certain advantages over xp, mostly falling under the title of ubuntu philosophy, which I endorse, despite being a misuse of the term philosophy), but its pretty decent. It’s cool to be able to run all this off the CD drive.
