It's been overdue. I was meant to do it as soon as I got my new laptop months ago, but I never got around to do it. I was not used to laptop at first and was afraid of stuffing up the install process by forgetting something.
But now I think I'm ready to take a risk. The Dell's pre-configured settings are making me waste too much space and time.
Anyways, I'm using my desktop computer at the moment which is running on Ubuntu 7.10. I'm going to install Ubuntu on my laptop as well as Vista though so I can do some development work on it a bit easier. Provided everything goes well, I should be done by... hmm... 1:00AM? Doh!
