The return to UBUNTU!
I made a radical decision with my team today.
I used to live on UBUNTU and only use Windows for things that wouldnt work under Ubuntu.
Recently my latest new developer was singing Ubuntu’s praises so I thought I’d go back for a revisit.
Netbeans runs in Ubuntu about 50 times faster than Windows. My machine under ubuntu has got a new lease of life.
– The graphics are astounding – I installed the compiz package.
– We used some sort of install that ran under windoze and creates a host folder with all my windows stuff. – This meant I could just load up and work on the netbeans projects from my windows directory.
– The install of ubuntu including all the setting up only took a couple of hours, most of the stuff was installed automatically.
– I had problems with VPN’s not connecting but that was quickly fixed
I can’t see myself returning to Windows any time soon, I simply don’t see the point.
I have got all the developers moving to Ubuntu now as it is simply better than Windows for development of java apps.
