Ubuntu Karmic Koala

I have been installing the beta of Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala" on an external USB disk. Ubuntu is a version of the open source (i.e. free) operating system Linux. It is very usable, and runs happily on old machines that struggle to run Windows. Best of all, it boots happily from an external disk, so I can plug my disk into any machine and I have "my" PC back again.

There are still a couple of bugs in the 9.10 beta, but the full release version comes out this week.
