Review: Ubuntu 8.04.3

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

I have installed Ubuntu 8.04.3 LTS in a virtual machine. The specs of the virtual machine are the same as they always are:

  • 512 mb of RAM
  • 8 GB Hard Drive

When I installed the OS it was a no brainer as it was so easy. I tend to forget how easy it is to install Ubuntu or its’ derivatives since I do not install Linux distributions all that much.  Since the install was no problem I had nothing but the easiest thing to do… wait. It only was installing for 5 minutes and then it was done.

After the install came the restarting and booting up of the VM. All I had to do was login and then I installed the updates. There were no problems and everything worked.

Thanks Canonical for having the last LTS to work so well and not give any problems like the 2 that came after it (8.10 and 9.04.) Those have had many problems and I have Ubuntu for a server to run these websites. I have had no problems with 8.04 at all.
