What is different in Ubuntu than Microsoft Windows
There is no reason why you won’t love using Ubuntu…after all, it comes for free and you get almost everything that you can expect from a reasonable operation system. However, like almost everyone, if you have been using Microsoft Windows previously and have just shifted to Ubuntu or are using it as dual-booting options, here are few features that you will find different in two of these operating systems.
- While you use Mozilla for Ubuntu, you will notice that you can’t press “Backspace” and go to the previous page of the website that you have opened. You will need to press the “back” button of the browser with the mouse of tough-pad of your laptop, which is located at the top left corner of the Mozilla browser. This is very difficult irregularity or dissimilarity because we are too much used to apply “Backspace” for going to the previous page. Personally, I find it very irritating.
- Secondly, if you want to see your desktop by minimizing the programs that you might have opened, you can’t use the short-cut key of “windows+d”. This is again very irritating because you are used to apply it in Microsoft Windows. I am not sure if Ubuntu has a short-cut key for lowering all the programs and seeing the desktop.
- If you right click the mouse or toughpad of your laptop while on the desktop, you won’t get the “refresh” option. You will have to use the “F5” key to do it.
- Then, there are some obvious dissimilarities like the task bar is at the top of the computer screen rather than at the bottom. The “start menu” button of Windows also does not work to display the “start menu”. So sort of handicaps while you want to operate Ubuntu through short-cut keys and keyboard.
Apart form these, there is no IE :). If you are used to work through that browser, you will have to go for its alternative.
