About time to try the latest one, Ubuntu 13.10
This time I choose the AMD64 desktop release.
Not much changed, bit other "look feel" , and of course better support for modern hardware.
Installed:


First thing to try out of course


No problems


One of the classics


Notice: Ubu 13.10 is not a LTS release, means that within a month or 9 you'll have to reinstall next version.
If you want LTS support simply stay on 12.04 till next LTS release.

Is it worth to get 13.10 ? Depends, if you run it on recent hardware: depends, but for myself 'yes'.
As said improved hardware support, and it's really bloody fast on a AMD64b quad core architecture.

And of course, tons of free software !!!!!

Worth mentioning for those who are 'affraid' of Linux based OSses : Zorin.
Been a while now I testrun this on Ubu based OS, and it delivers.

It's not Ubu, it has a more Windows oriented feel and look, if you can handle Windows you will be easily be able to find your way around in Zorin.
Comes of course as the usual Ubu distri with a ton of free software ......

Some screens:




Meheh....


Also worth a special mentioning:
comes with WINE bundled with 'playonlinux', a kind of WINE frontend, makes it easy to run win based games on linux. Hasslefree.

Comes soon : updated Ubu 14.04 LTS ..... urgently need to look at that one.

installing it on linux is so simple as

sudo apt-get install dosbox

then your config file is in .dosbox hidden folder in your home directory

to edit configuration file simply use

nano /home/USER/.dosbox/dosbox-0.74.conf

CTRL+X to exit

simples!
