    New ubuntu build -

    I'm putting together a new desktop system and I'm going to try to make the switch to linux for my day to day machine. I'll start with ubuntu as it would appear to the the most 'stupid user' ready. I'm wondering if there would be any real linux reason to go with a certain kind of hardware...

    Yet another Vsta question - this time about upgrade

    i want to get my hands on a copy of Vista Ultimate - Retail, but I'm not so sure I want to drop $399 on it. (or $379 from amazon). I know the upgrade version of ultimate would be $249 (amazon), but does that give me the retail license I want. With all the talk about oem vs retail I think...
