@ubuntuhelp08 Thank you, I tried the software center and the Medibuntu repos and all updates before playing the movie. At the time Lucid should not have been released…something about a serious memory leak bug but was released anyway.
@RondoRaven I think users should take whatever is comfortable for them. That's cool. Right now, no linux is good enough to replace my Windows XP or 7 system.
For example, I can't play HD videos in Linux but fine in Windows. Choppy video in Linux but perfect in Windows. It's extra things like this–not the base Ubuntu system–
that turns Windows users off Linux.
