Ubuntu Draft: Available on Tap February 21, 2007Posted by Carthik in ubuntu.
I don’t know how this has managed to evade my attention for all of 9 months – clearly, I am slacking. 🙂
Imagine having a network port you could plug into to install Ubuntu! Well, its not so hard, apparently to serve Ubuntu on tap!
The Ubuntu Port is a neat little idea. It was installed by the combined efforts of David Basden, Matt Johnston, Davyd Madeley, James French (who broke the network, twice), one power drill, a multimeter named Albert and the Klone Krone. Davyd’s gallery has some photos.
To install Ubuntu, all you have to do is plug in to the tap, reboot, choosing to boot from network, listen to the Ubuntu theme song, and press Enter as Ubuntu gets installed. Installing from a CD might be simpler, but it sure ain’t as sexy/geeky.
Heck, this is a must-have for every install fest, and university tech support office!
