Nice article about Ubuntu
and Its Leader Set Sights on the Mainstream – NYTimes.com
I’ve been pretty happy since switching over my main “surfing” lappie to Ubuntu. I still have some strange stuff once in awhile (Firefox taking over the entire screen) and some stuff that took some hacking to figure out (Skype doesn’t like the default sound package) and other stuff that just doesn’t work reliabley at all (printing on shared Windows devices). However 90% of the time, it just works, which is all I ask of an OS.
