Ubuntu is for Power Professionals

Adam Overa wrote an interesting article Desktop Linux For The Windows Power User for Tom's Hardware. It gives a good review of Ubuntu 9.04 and goes through the common questions power windows users have. I learned most of what Adam says here through trial and error. Using mount points instead of drive letters can be confusing as well as using the same program for adding software as you use for removing it is a little different. Adam demonstrates how to add restricted software which sometimes throws a new user. I found it well worth the read even though I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 on 20 machines, almost one per day.
