I managed to download and try the xubuntu live today..
the one referred by http://ubuntu.com.my/ in the left menu link also pointing to http://www.ubuntu.com/products/GetUbuntu/download .. but the right menu link.. pointing to http://tw.releases.ubuntu.com/intrepid/
which is unreachable at the moment..
may be have not tried hard enough .. unable to find nearer south-east-asia mirrors though..
finally downloaded the iso image from australia mirror ..
[Xubuntu ~ 600Mb ~ took about 11hour and 53minute to complete]
Xubuntu from australia
at same time downloading ..
[CentOS 5.3 ~ 3.7GB ~ also completed in 14 hour and 16minute] CentOS 5.3 iso mirrored in Singapore.
then i was trying to test the USB 3G modem (E220) provided by maxis broadband.
woohoo~.. detected automatically ..
will post on how to configure maxis broadband on ubuntu in next post..
[to be continued..]
p/s : the Ubuntu effort is noticeable in GUI and user-friendly interface .. ~ very impressive ~
