"Most Linux distros won't even install on recent machines There are stil problems with SATA, NTFS, sound cards, etc"

Ubuntu Linux (#1 at distrowatch) handles my Athlon 3500+ with Sata and PCI-E, dual NICs, with ease, no sound issues (I use 5.10b) I have used the live CD to recover information from from both NTFS (windows) and HFS+ (mac). Perhaps you are a little out of touch with the current state of Linux.

I help people migrate to Linux, out of my 50 or so installs, I have only had one show stoper ever.
