Well good for you, I got programs that will likely never work in Linux and I shouldn't need to force myself to give them up. I got the spare laptops to try it out, to see if the clones can hold a candle to what I am used to (and hoping they're not watered down variants, like the BlackBerry clone of Angry Birds called Angry Farm) however I refuse to touch Ubuntu. If you can help advise another capable distro ill be happy to try again. So far other than theming it in Star Trek LCARS or recreating the Irix desktop from Jurassic Park (recreating science fiction computers is a hobby of mine) on a normal use basis Vector is only good at browsing the web or checking email, and can't play my games.
