How to Install Ubuntu Linux

A lot of my friends have asked me to install Ubuntu Linux on their computers as an alternate to Microsoft Windows. And many more have asked for a suitable and easy to follow guide for doing just that. So here it is. A simple and easy visual guide that I have put together for everyone, even non-techies to use. I have deliberately tried to keep it simple, easy and visual so that anyone can use it to install the operating system. Ubuntu installation is anyways a breeze and this guide will only make it more so.

Do not worry about the version of Ubuntu that you are installing. All versions are similar when it comes to installation. Hence, Ubuntu 11.04, 12.04, 12.10 etc will all install in a similar fashion.

Techie by day, blogger by night. Love the outdoors, enjoy traveling and building new and interesting things. Follow me if you want to know something.
