This week's Low End Mac column is up. It has many geeky words, like "Linux" and "gestalt" and "geekery".

Linux? I'm there!

Uh, what about Ubuntu?

Longtime Windows and Linux user here and just recently got my first Mac. The Mac is very alien to me. I'm going to give it a fair trial, but I'm not sure it will ever dislodge Windows or Linux.

Regarding Linux, I think it has finally come into it's own. Prior to a few days ago, the newest distro I had used was a 4yo copy of SuSE Linux. It worked, but like most previous distros, it felt like a disjointed collection of tools, not really all that well integrated. Unbuntu 8.04 feels really tight to me and contains all the tools to make a modern system work. I could easily see it replacing Windows on the desktop next time I have to make that choice. I might not be using Windows past XP...
