That may well be true. However, because Linux sucks so hard for things like video, sound, printing, syncing your ipod, and all the other things that real users want to do with their desktops, it is not something that I care to support. And support it I must, because I'll have chosen it for them precisely because I can support it but not Windows.

    Linux video: not a problem
    Linux sound: not a problem
    Linux printing: not a problem, though I understand it's printer-dependant (I like Brother)
    Linux iPod: dunno... I bought a reasonably priced mp3/ogg player and it works great.

      Well gosh, I must have been imagining how bad it all was. I'll have to remember that in future, whenever I think something doesn't work very well it's all in my head.

      So I'm going to try to make ice cream in my oven when I get home. Cos wolfger reckons it will work.

        Is that what passes for logic in a Mac world? I certify that certain things work for me with no problems whatsoever, ergo I think you can make ice cream in an oven? WTF?
