Default Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Experiences

I recently lucked into purchasing a nice little pc. The processor was an AMD 3800+ and it had 512mb DDR2 as well as a 120GB harddrive and a Cd/Dvd burner. The problem was that it was loaded with Vista Basic. I can only see that as pure insanity and so the idea to experiment and load up linux came to mind. Typically I have only fooled with live CD's and such.

I was quite pleased that it was painless to install by reformatting the drive. Ubuntu really runs great even with only 512mb of Ram. I managed to install the restricted Nvidia drivers as well as enough codecs to play whatever I needed too. So far I am very happy with Linux. It seems a better then the 7.10 release as well. I may be a bit of a linux noob but it is very interesting and evena bit fun. What does everyone else think so far?
