    This version (even ubuntu) is not in the GNU’s free software distros list.To a software to confirm with GNU’s philosophy, it should contain all free software (not even a single library should be non-free)Here are the GNU recommended free software distro list:http://www.gnu.org/distros/free-distros.htmlAs most of the hardware vendors don’t release their drivers under gpl..those hardwares will not be supported in your distro

    @SuganthiHow did you install ubuntu? There are two modes of installation , 1.install inside windows 2.separate install..If you have used separate install (i.e separate EXT3/EXT2 partition) and deleted the ubuntu partition later, the boot loader GRUB will be erased and you wont be able to boot windows..And if u have installed ubuntu inside windows , just removing ubuntu in add or remove programs of windows will uninstall ubuntu 😛 …If you need any help feel free to email me 🙂

    The system configuration will change. If I log into windows after logging out of my ubuntu, it wont boot up(not always. bt often). I had to change the system config(Pressing F2). the data control system wil be enabled. It must be changed to compatible for windows to work.

    It isn't changin your system configuration …….Poor windows notices that you haven't booted into it last time when you loaded its bootloader and develops a false alarm that there is something wrong with your configuration……It isn't a ubuntu bug..thats windows
