For the 100th time in my life I am installing Ubuntu in a machine — in my MacBook Pro this time.
Since it’s the third year of the second decade of the third millennium, I was expecting a dull “plug and play” procedure. But it came as a nice surprise that Linux is still a wonderful unpredictable adventure. You never know whether installing your wireless card will take seconds or hours; whether or not upgrading your graphics card will result on a bricked system; or whether or not you’ll end the day throwing your computer out a window in frustration.
Just kidding — you know for sure that installing the wireless card will take weeks, and that you’ll end up throwing yourself out a window.
