I generally don’t jump on the meme bandwagon but I thought this one might be of interest to some of you. My old co-worker, Clint Savage, jumped on a meme regarding “What’s the first thing you do after installing <distro>?”
I’d be very interested in what my reader-base does after first installing Ubuntu. Perhaps you’ll discuss it in the Ubuntu Tutorials Forum?
In any case, this is the first command I run after installing Ubuntu:
sudo aptitude install htop nautilus-open-terminal ubuntu-restricted-extras vim-full gnome-do gnome-do-plugins
Did I miss anything?
