Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Many Linux users have experience with Wine, the application compatibility layer which allows some Windows programs to run on UNIX-like machines. During Ubuntu's Open Week event, Mark Shuttleworth was asked about Wine, and how important he believes it is for the success of Ubuntu.

I got my laptop from Asus (well, Acer): the hardware is decently configurable, and you can choose what OS license to buy with the machines... or not to buy an OS license. I'm using Ubuntu, runing a few games through Wine, having never paid for a Windows license (well, at least not for this machine. ;)
