AND WE'RE UP AND RUNNING! Aloha from my newly-Ubuntu'ed Sony Vaio! So far so good... plugged in an ethernet cable and clicked the Firefox logo, and we're online... just like a Mac, no screwing around with setups. I'm currently on version 6.10, but I'm also currently burning the install disc for 9.10, so I'll be upgrading very shortly. This is pretty cool... it does fly!
