Ubuntu a rocking desktop

After you have your ubuntu OS installed and its fully functional, Install the listed applications/packages and make it a perfect desktop and you can do almost anything you can do on windows.
Install these packages:
  1. Install Software Updates first.
  2. Install Automatix, it lets you install lots of applications that too without using the termina(Best for windows users like me who have made a recent switch).Refer ->http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=138405
  3. Install NTFS-3G if you have windows installed on other partitions, this will mount your windows partition and make it viewable in ubuntu.
  4. Install multimedia codecs through Automatix.
  5. Install VLC media player.
  6. Enable Desktop Effects.
  7. Speed up your OpenOffice. Refer -> http://www.zolved.com/synapse/view_content/28209/How_to_make_OpenOffice_run_faster_in_Ubuntu
  8. Install Adobe Reader through Automatix.
This will make Ubuntu a rockin desktop to work with and you certainly won't miss Windows a lot.
Cheers

Hey dude,
Good Work.

How do you update your Ubuntu to the latest level, do you use the GUI?

I like to use this:
# sudo apt-get upgrade -y
Its the first thing I do after installing.

Agneepath (2012) - Movie Review (Its a remake - not a ripoff Rating : 4/5)

Original Agneepath(1990) in which Big B played Vijay Dinanath Chauhan and Danny Denzongpa as Kancha Cheena is considered a cult revenge movie.Big B also won a national award for the same. Remaking a movie which was famous for award winning performances and solid dialogues was much of a dare - but Karan Johar produced and Karan malhotra directed Agneepath (2012) does not dissapoint at all.First things first : Its a remake - not a ripoff - and that works bigtime in favor of the movie. Story is same but the treatment is way different and that makes sure that comparison does not spoil anything.Hrithik as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan - Outstanding in one word - every scene he has done shows that he has lived the character and he did not need much dialogues as his expressions and eyes do all the talking - his character is all raw no style and only focused on avenging his father's death. If anyone would have done justice to Vijay Chauhan it is Hrithik. Rishi Kapoor as Rauf Lala : Once bollywood&…
