- How do I install Ubuntu? 5 answers
I have installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. Since I hate Windows, I would also like to install Ubuntu on my desktop. It has two 1TB drives in ntfs (one drive is 1TB partition and other 1TB is C: 500GB partition for Windows XP and f: 500GB for data and programs) and I have searched the FAQ and did not come up with an answer if I would lose my data on ntfs drives or if they would mount.
I am a beginner to Ubuntu and do not know how to use the terminal, but I have been using Windows since early DOS. I am 63 and my memory is slipping. I just want Bill Gates out of my computers. I have a Windows tech charging me now to see why my copy of XP Pro is saying it may be counterfeit, and I know that it is not. $99.00 and he will likely tell me I will have to buy a new key at some price. "Love Ubuntu". Also is there any place that I can get a complete list of commands for use in the terminal for Ubuntu 12.04. Thanks for your kind understanding.
