Ubuntu Desktop Computing Made Easy Part 2

Download your desired flavor of Ubuntu, burn the .iso file to a blank disk and then install it on your trusty computer. Next, update the operating system. Search for Software & Updates and launch the app. Under the Other Software tab check the two boxes for Canonical partners and reload when prompted. Once the changes have been made launch the Software Updater and install all available updates. After rebooting, in Software & Updates under the Additional Drivers tab, enable the appropriate one(s) for your system (if desired).
