How do you like it?  I just got my desktop upgraded to 9.04 last weekend (after trying several other distros and eventually coming back to Ubuntu) and I'm really liking it.  They done a lot of good work on it.  A lot of nice touches and seems like a lot of work on making it run faster/smoother.

Obviously, just got here, but there is a certain feel to Ubuntu that I like .. hard to describe .. clean, fresh, elegant, responsive. I would like to spend more time here.

I have been learning more about the UNIX (Linux) shell, so I figure this was a good time to upgrade.

And it seems the network connection problems I was having were due to my own inexperience with VMware, and not with Ubuntu.

The bottom line is .. does it work or not? And if thereś a problem, how much effort will it take to resolve?

Thanks for the help. I appreciate it. More than you might know.

I asked for help over at the Ubuntu forums, but didnt get much help there.

BTW I am getting a loud low-frequency beep when I hit/press the ' apostrophe key. But it didnot happen there .. but it DID happen when I tried to type the word > didnt  (there it happened).

Sup wit dat?

I can safely say I've never dealt with that problem...

If you press Ctrl+Alt+F3 you should end up in a terminal.  Log in and see if the same thing happens there.

I suspect it might have something to do with the key mappings...(?)

so it seems that learning the shell is really learning the commands that the shell uses and what those commands do .. along with their switches.

Well, that's the first step.  It's about half the battle.  The second part is understanding environment variables, config files, and how input and output works.  But none of it is very hard, and your Linux confidence will soar as you get more comfortable with it.

You don't have to worry too much about memorizing switches.  As long as you know which command you need, you can always use the man pages to see the switches.
