[ Thanks to Falko Timme for this link. ]

"This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu Studio 10.04 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

"I want to say first that this is not the only way of setting up such a system. There are many ways of achieving this goal but this is the way I take. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

"1 Preliminary Note

"To fully replace a Windows desktop, I want the Ubuntu Studio desktop to have the following software installed: Graphics:

* The GIMP - free software replacement for Adobe Photoshop
* F-Spot - full-featured personal photo management application for the GNOME desktop
* Google Picasa - application for organizing and editing digital photos

"Internet:
* Firefox
* Opera
* Flash Player 10
* FileZilla - multithreaded FTP client"
