Windows is no more!

, posted: 10-Nov-2007 12:02

Today, I erased the Windows partition on my dual-boot laptop. Smile What a happy day!

It's all Linux (Ubuntu) now. After yesterday's release of Video Skype for Linux, I had absolutely no use for Windows anymore. So, this morning, the NTFS partition was reformatted with ext3, a quick edit in the Grub boot menu, and here we go. Windows is no more.

I swear, the laptop feels lighter now when I pick it up! Wink
