I'm going to be getting a new system next week. I'm finally going to take the leap and run Linux as the native OS on it.
Seems like a standard install of Ubuntu is the way to go for a newbie. I'm planning on 10.04 LTS. Is there anything that I should change right away that will cause me problems down the road?
I'll be using this system for web development, mainly programming PHP. I'll be using my old laptop for testing with IE and Safari, at least until I either use Wine or VirtualBox to run them on the new machine.
I think I'm going to force myself to learn Vim while I'm at it.
