I’m getting ready to update my Linux computer to Ubuntu 12.1. And as I write this, Windows 8 crashes on me! This is not a joke. For real. It happens maybe once a week, which is better than most older versions of Windows. Linux has almost never crashed on me. I mean, maybe once a year over the past 10 years. Anyway, where were we before the crash and reboot? Yes. Updating to Ubuntu 12.1, which is a lot less work than my wife went through “upgrading” from Windows 7 to Windows 8 (and back again).
