Goodbye windows, hello linux

Well tonight decided that both the XP / Vista (dual boot) installed on my main desktop at home were too annoying and memory hogging.

Decided to give a Linux distro a go, as have become quite accustomed recently to the unix way of doing things (well have a few cent servers running, and have a macbook).

Went for Ubuntu Gutsy (7.10), and after fighting with it to play nicely with my nVidia graphics card, and Dual HP monitors, it seems pretty cool.

Still gotta get it to play with my web cam (shouldn’t be too difficult) and my Asus TV Tuner card, which so far doesn’t look too promising on the t’internet.

Oh and… can’t sleep again. Grr!
