3 successful things I did with Ubuntu

1. install the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS-The lucid Linux as they say it.
download link is given below:
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

2.I tried to connect with Internet with Tata Docomo SIM.It was a quite cumbersome process if you have ever come face to face with 9.4 or lower versions of Ubuntu.but with 10.4 its quite simple one.

step.1: System>preferences>connection manager
step 2. Don't touch anything rather than "mobile broadband" tab.
step 3. Through USB connect Nokia5233 with laptop in pc suite mode.
step 4. mobile broadband>add.Now you will find your phone name displayed here.
step 4. click forward>country(India) and click forward>Choose your provider(Tata Docomo)>select your plan(Internet)

and thats it! it will automatically do settings like:
APN:tata.docomo.internet
number:*99#

now double click on the connection manager icon in the bar that u see at the top-right corner and click on Tata Docomo Internet option.

If you want to be on-line every time you connect your phone with machine with data cable just right click on connection manager icon and select edit connection.
select Tata Docomo Internet and then check the box that says:connect automatically.
To go off-line select click on connection manager and click on disconnect option.

Is not it so simple once you get familiar with this whole process.
I am getting a speed of around 20Kbps which is better than TATA photon whiz I disconnected last week. :)

3.As you have Internet now,you can download any kind of dependencies/.deb files etc required.I have used the inbuilt video/audio players(of-course firstly installing proper decoders for them)

P.S.: I want to make upcoming minor project in JAVA on this platform. I'll tell you people later about that next week for sure.Leaving you people wit a funny picture here:
