Of course

It gets even better, because 101010 is binary for 42 (make sure to read the release announcement And don't forget the brand-new Q&A site for Ubuntu!

We're geeks to the core!

Best regards...

I'm going to wait for some feedback first DD. I'd rather make sure no show stoppers rear their ugly heads first. Plus I haven't checked the compatibility on all the add-ons I'm running.

I will eventually though.

Man, really looking forward to getting a dedicated linux box. Got the parts... just need a spare monitor +KB/M. Letting my buddy borrow my spare monitor untill he can get a new one. Once he does I'm picking up a cheap kb/m and then I'll have my dedicated linux box--- YAY!

Likely by then Ubuntu 11.0 or whatever will be out.

Gotta' be honest... if they can get most proprietary software to work- like iTunes, support for WMA and WMV, DX, etx... ubuntu/kubuntu would likely be my main OS.

Nah...it still can't take the place of my Window 7 box. I mean, I love working with Linux, but Microsoft is still mainstream. I'm not saying this to start a Windows vs Linux war, but facts are facts. Windows still have an insurmountable edge on Linux, and that is not going to go away in the foreseeable future.

I know, and that is basically what I was saying. If I could get all the popular windows software to work flawlessly and with ease in Ubuntu or Kubuntu... then it'd be my main OS. They're a long ways from that though... so that means Windows will be my main os in the time being.
