Veteran developer ditches Microsoft for open source

Some well meaning soul posted: "It really sux trying to get Linux to run on a laptop" - wow, that doesn't sound like anyone who's in touch with the current state of things. Maybe they tried installing linux on a linux unfriendly laptop in 1994, and assume nothing has changed.

At any rate, I had a macbook pro, and I liked it - I also started using an hp laptop with ubuntu hardy installed, and everything worked. I took the buntu laptop on a trip with me and it partied like a rock star, using the wireless in the airports, connecting via the cisco vpn to the office, watching videos online, all with eye candy and suspend/resume and a lot of fun.

I sold my macbook pro - don't need it anymore, and ubuntu is a lot more fun to use.
