Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

If a video card has gone out of production, and Windows goes up a version or two, you are out of luck.

Yes that's called progress. Lack of drivers isn't microsofts problem but if the manufacturer doesn't want to update their drivers than their customers are out of luck.
All the cards you list are either old, or have bugs, have very limited onboard memory and a ramdac that makes your eyes water.

You don't have to upgrade every old computer to Vista...
besides the hardware requirements are pretty high.
