Linux on my Macbook

I have said in the past, that once Linux gets easier to use, and is more widespread and supported, I will probably make the switch. Well, I have Ubuntu on my Macbook as a dual boot with OSX 10.5. It is getting close to being great “out of the box”, even though it never came in a box! Right now there are some hibernation issues on the Macbooks, but the wireless is working now with a little Terminal hack, sound works, the keyboard is recognized, etc…

One day I would love to be free of a locked in operating system. Having said that, if you have a ‘PC’, then switch now! noweeopensourceUbuntu, Fedora Core, Debian are 3 great ones to start on. OSX is based on Unix(in fact it is a certified version of Unix), and is pretty slick, stable and easy to use, but I can see a time when Windows and OSX will be too slow out of the gate to keep up with the technology advances. How long did it take Microsoft to release a new version of Windows? 7 years? Apple to release 10.5? 2 years? Linux updates? 6 months!!!Linux has a huge developer community, and they are the real nerds… Part time hobby for now for me…Tux is damn cute too…
