Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "It may be a brave opinion but I predict that Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista are going to be the two operating systems that will take over the largest chunk of the desktop OS market during the next couple of years. This comparison is based on my experience with both systems during the last couple of weeks on two different computers."

However, what I want, and I suspect a lot of OSS advocates also want, is for a major manufacturer to take that giant extra step and assertively offer such support from the ground up.


Either buy direct from here, or buy one of the models this dealer sells:

http://system76.com/index.php?cPath=27
http://system76.com/index.php?cPath=29

That way, you don't even have to do the little bit of research, or indeed if you want you don't even have to get the liveCD & install the system.

And you can get support:

More & more people, somewhat to their surprise apparently, are finding that it is actually typically trouble-free:
