My 1st International Package - and it's FREE!!

Yup, that’s right.

On 19th November, I ordered a CD from the Internet. It was a Ubuntu Linux Desktop Version 8.10. Ubuntu is one of the popular Linux distros, amongst others like Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE, Debian etc.So why did I ordered it? Well, since it is FREE in everything, not just free to use, to distribute, to share with other people, to modify its source code etc, but they can send it to you also for free, no shipping cost etc., so who wouldn’t want to have one, especially FREE stuff?

It flew all the way from Holland to Malaysia for 1 months. I thought it should be quicker. They accept and processed my order on 24th November, sent it and it arrived at Malaysia on 1st December. But I’m not sure why it took another 2 weeks til it arrived at my home yesterday.

As it stated from Canonical (Ubuntu's commercial sponsor), there should be no shipping cost whatsoever, so you should received it as it is.

The inside packages. Now where should I put these stickers on…My CPU, my mouse, keyboard, monitor blabla…

Yup, it is the genuine CD. At least for this time, I acquired original software legally. How many of you even had an original software CD of any kind at your home? I had a couple, but still, there’s tons of ‘pirated booties’ installed in my PC already: p

I haven’t install this yet. I think I’m going to replace my [non-genuine] Windows OS once and for all and support open source software all the way, hahaha…


Not yet. Maybe I’ll try dual-booting first, or using a virtual machine, like VMware or MS VirtualPC. However, it’s good to get to learn some of new cool and free stuffs of Linux and harvest the power of it, be it for enhance reliability and/or security.

Now, I’m ordering it again, this time, the Server Edition. Not just that, I ordered a 64-bit Edition even I do not have a 64-bit capable system (yet). Of course I’m planning to have one anytime in near future. I’m surveying a lot Intel Core 2 (Duo/Quad/Extreme) and maybe Core i7 (which means, a whole new system...huuuuu), and aching to feel the world of 64-bit*.

Get your free Ubuntu CD, here. (you can always download it, though.)

* - I’ve already test it for a while on Hadfi Chip ‘Farit Ismeth’ Farahan PC. He owned a Pentium D system and I’ve installed Vista 64-bit on it. But it didn’t last long as there weren’t many 64-bit capable software then (Nov’ 2006) so Chip reinstall it with the usual Win XP.

This Isn't The End

Starting off to face the day
Seconds away from a life with endless...
Torment my mind with the thoughts of a beginning
To show you just what I feel
To decipher what is real

There's just so much to be said
So much is running through my head
In a time staggered on the end
Maybe now can we pretend?

For a second I felt so brave
Flowing through fault lines
Wearing on my mind
Technicalities set you off the stage and when you see me now and then
There will be no exchange of hands
Scratch the plans

There's just so much to be said
So much is running through my head
In a time staggered on the end
Maybe now can we pretend?

This isn't the end

There's just so much to be said
So much is running through my head
In a time staggered on the end
Maybe now can we pretend?

SONG: This Isn't The End
ARTIST: A Skylit Drive
ALBUM: Wires...and the Concept of Breathing
