Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:Best So Far!

Intro to Ubuntu 14 04.1 for Newbies

Recommended System requirements

Ubuntu should run reasonably well on a computer with the following minimum hardware specification. However, features such as visual effects may not run smoothly.

1.6 GHz x86 processor
512 MB of system memory (RAM)
8 GB of disk space
Graphics card capable of 1024x768 resolution
Sound card
A network or Internet connection

Note: All 64-bit (x86-64) PCs should be able to run Ubuntu. Use the 64-bit installation CD for a 64-bit-optimised installation.

My Recommendation for visual effects

# 3 GHz x86 processor
# 2 Gig of system memory (RAM)
# 100 Gig of unalocated hard drive space.
# Supported graphics card A high end if you want Games
Note I have found ATI and Nividia are well supported by ubuntu.

My System recomendations will give you what you need to try all your favorite Ubuntu Apps and Games.

Visual effects provide various special graphical effects for your desktop to make it look and feel more fun and easier to use. If your computer is not powerful enough to run visual effects, you can turn them off and will still have a usable Ubuntu desktop. Visual effects are turned on by default if you have a graphics card which is supported.

We shall be using Pipelight, a project that brings Silverlight support to Linux via Wine. The project is in beta but works quite well. Let’s see how to install Pipelight in Ubuntu 14.04.

Install Pipelight in Ubuntu 14.04

Installing Pipelight in Ubuntu 14.04 is very easy thanks to the PPA by Pipelight team. Open a terminal and run the following commands one by one:

Enable Sliverlight to play Netflix

Usually silverlight plugin should have been enabled with Pipelight by default but just to make sure, enable Silverlight using the command below:
sudo pipelight-plugin --enable silverlight

There will be two conditions to accept, once you do that, it will take some more time to install Silverlight.

sudo apt-get install netflix-desktop

Once installed, you can search for Netflix in Unity Dash.
