Okay, I just received my Core 2 Duo system from Ebay and it came with Ubuntu installed by default. Ugggg, I'm going to keep it installed until the 14 days of exchange ends, then put Mageia 2 and maybe Win 7 on it.

Ubuntu is showing build date as 11.10, so this version is a year old. I don't know if I should update it or not. So far all my external hardware is working without issues, but I haven't tried my Brother All-In-One printer yet. Is this Unity desktop, as Bob mention, it has the icons as a sidebar?

My next task is to get the AIO working, which shouldn't be a big deal since Brother do offer .deb files on their website.
