Step 7 Of 7
The final page of the installation is simply a summary of the options and settings that you have chosen thus far.
The Advanced button brings up options for the boot loader as well as settings for a network proxy and the option to sign up for an optional package (program) usage survey. If you have multiple hard drives, make sure that the boot loader is going to be installed on the hard drive set to boot first. The default setting (hd0) already points to the first hard disk drive in the boot order. When finished, click OK. You are now ready to click Install to begin copying files to the hard drive.
Depending on your system specs, copying files may take some time. When the progress bar finishes, you will be asked to restart the computer by clicking Restart Now.
After a few moments, your CD should eject and you'll be asked to remove it and press the Enter key to continue.
sudo apt-get install *app name here*
One issue that you may encounter is GoogleGears that is 32bit only, but you can easily find Gears for 64 bit (without Google trade mark).
@thepinkpanther: Linux ain't Windows. Linux is Linux, so if your goal is to run Windows apps all day, I don't think choosing Linux as your primary OS makes the most sense.
@fordry06: That certainly is a problem. Now, most hardware manufacturers don't disclose all the information about their hardware, so it's quite hard to write perfectly working drivers for OSes other than Windows. Although it's not Red Hat/SuSE/Ubuntu/(Insert Linux vendor here)'s fault, as a user, you don't really care about that, do you? Basically, for a lot of hardware out there, you have to fight to get it to work in Linux. For me, I got a bog standard laptop. In Ubuntu 9.04, pretty much everything I use worked out of the box. Now, certain things aren't working as well, such as my card reader only reading SD and MMC cards in Ubuntu... but I don't use anything other than SD cards. So for me, it's working just fine. For others... not so much. And regarding your games in Linux, see what I said above to thepinkpanther. Linux ain't Windows.
Well, having gravitated away from games, and not being particularly loyal to any company or OS or anything, I really honestly don't care if I'm on *gasp* a Mac or Windows or Linux. So it all works out for me. Hey, if you really want me to get philosophical then let me just say that I think you can enjoy life best when you stop caring about all the trivial things. Why should I care what Microsoft has to say about Apple or vice versa? Why should I care when a Linux zealot declares the start of the nineteenth Crusade against Sata- er, Bill Gates?
Flame on! or not.
Summed it up quite nicely
