Gutsy Gibbon is here.

While it's not a major release (wait till 8.04), it's easily the best Ubuntu yet, with lots of small tweaks from 7.04.

Worth trying out. The standard CD is a live, bootable CD, so you can try it out.

There is also Gobuntu, a ultra-orthodox interpretation of FOSS, which might be worth a try if you think you're up for it.

UBuntu looks to be like the best current distro of linux. I just wish wine was able to support at least dx9 games.

Dual boot.

Windows for games, Ubuntu for everything else.

I'm just trying out Compliz for the first time - I thought it was just eye-candy (and it mostly is), but it has an Alt+mouse-wheel to flick back to the last window... very handy.

I've got this, and it is sweet. I have always loved it. Funny how far they have come and look at Microsoft is suing company's like Novell and Redhat *shakes head*

n0e;3985763UBuntu looks to be like the best current distro of linux. I just wish wine was able to support at least dx9 games.

Any chance that wine is going to expand into dx9 games? I was under the impression that it supported some dx9 games. I'm looking into using Xubuntu (with Wubi as my jumping point -- so yes, with a double boot) to attempt to play FH, and FHT. Looks like that plug would be pulled by BF42... hmmm... I thought I saw some Linux updates for BF42, what's that all about if it doesn't work on wine? -=CURSED=-

Where you can move your mouse to a corner of the screen, and it will resize all of the windows, making them visible. Like Apple's Expose' feature. Handy if you like viewing Windows at full screen. The Zoom feature also helps to see those little things.

The Battlefield updates for Linux are for the Server only version. BF1942 does work under Cadega. It is Wine with better DirectX 9 suppport. They use private code, so there is a small fee.

Yeah, I installed Ubuntu, very nice looking, couldn't figure it out. Can't even figure out how to remove the kernel from the HDD, even after a format.
