Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play. ntfs-3g is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. This tutorial shows how to install and use ntfs-3g on a Ubuntu Edgy Eft desktop to read from and write to Windows NTFS drives and partitions. It covers the usage of internal NTFS partitions (e.g. in a dual-boot environment) and of external USB NTFS drives. Additionally, one more FS-related article (How To Resize ext3 Partitions Without Losing Data), and one Ubuntu (Why Ubuntu Is Number One).

I'm not sure what your point is. I think your an excellent example of an Ubuntu user. Part time linux user.

"but I had some problems with videocard support on some systems and the showstopper at home it would not print ot my HP PSC all-in-one."

You clearly didn't buy either hardware with Open-source drivers in mind and yet claim to be a long time convert. Its the tail wagging the dog.

The ubuntu stuff extends further than a couple of binary drivers, have a look at some of the fendora blogs.

Their is nothing to be ashamed of being, by being an Ubuntu user. One of things about Linux is the choice, and I believe that people generally move towards a distribution that *suits* them for a multitude of reasons.

Mac users have a lot to be smug about having good MAC hardware compatibility, but they pay a premium for it.
