This gives me a reason to look at options for Linux more than I have before trying some. I too am looking at switching - though I'd keep my Mac, only because I still need it for Mac-specific stuff.

If you have an old laptop just try Linux on that :)

We have iPhones and Mac's because of Safari.
Since Safari handles a lot of modern stuff poorly or different we call it now the new IE :D

I actually have no laptops - only desktops, but the combination of distribution and hardware I chose is known to work. I located the hardware and am creating a USB boot disk as I type this.

I’ve completed the distribution selection process and prepared the computer it will be installed on. All I need now is that mouse I ordered from Amazon to arrive.
