Pics sent.

Holy jezus eating a burger on a stick in the rain - THIS THING IS FAST!! Makes Lion seem like a bloated Vista piece of crap. And ram usage?

On Lion, I'd be using 1.5GB at start up and 5 or so with 1 VM running. In Ubuntu, with the same VM setup, I have 2.8GB used. Awesome.

I have 6GB by the way.

I put Ubuntu on the wife's 5+ year old laptop a few weeks ago. It runs Windows 7 alright, but Firefox would really get bogged down.

The Ubuntu install was VERY fast, but the lack of Netflix support was a deal breaker for her.

Any service that limits you to one web browser like Netflix is a complete waste of time and made even worse by the fact it's only available in some countries.
