Ubuntu 11.04 on an Agility 3 SSD

Wed Sep 21, 2011 3:58 am

Just installed it last week. 11.04 x64 on a Agility 3 SSD, with 12 Gigs RAM and an i5 2500k processer. Its bliteringly fast. Much faster than my Windows 7 install on the same drive.

Boots from bios to log in screen in about 12 seconds! Firefox is open 1 second later.

Who knew the powers of SSDs huh? :-)

Ubuntu generally boots faster than Win 7 for me. No surprise it's also faster on SSD. I wonder what Ubuntu's counterpart for BSOD is! :D
