hello all - im fairly new to this community. i've been a long time windows user, and basically looking to jump ship to Apple. "it just works" im holding out for new macbook / macbook pros before i take the dive. Ubuntu is free as we all know, so i decided to give it a shot (7.10 Gutsy Gibbon), i tried ubuntu with the mindset ''ok, lets see how user friendly this is". 1. i cant boot off the livecd (amd64 version) just a black screen 2. ubuntuforums.org suggest i try some odd command just to fix it 3. i dont think it supports my audio card, a thread suggested to downgrade my card!? bleh.... no thanks linux, its like playing catch - up just to get things going. im also very afraid of it's compatibility with other devices such as digi cam's etc... Im very excited for Leopards upcoming release - for those of u who have tried ubuntu, windows and OSX may i have ur comments please?
