  • Hi, Just watch this, was abit disappointed. I have seen the full install process before, this was a abit of a waste Time, could have done with some time lapse :). Also the Unity interface was not working, this is what was interested in your appoint on and how it was on a netbook?

    Loved the expression through the eyebrows at the start though:)

  • Hummmm… tough (but fair) criticism! I will see if I can’t rectify that in the next Netcast! (#162 that is!) Thanks!

  • Ubuntu’s Unity interface in 10.10 tries to start with 3D graphics. If you install as a VM without the VMware Tools, then Unity will default to something like a Gnome desktop. In Dr. Bill’s demo, he used the VMware install wizard that if you notice applied the VMware tools at the end. VMware tools will allow some 3D graphics in the VM, enough for Unity to work. I think VMware started adding that step of the wizard in VMware Workstation 7 and up. Thanks for the Video.
