    So, is Ubuntu like IKEA? Easy (or at least easier) to put it together yourself?

    I do not think that Ubuntu is like Ikea. Ubuntu is more like a house that is already built and we buy ready furnished. Except we do not buy Ubuntu or pay rent. For years Companies like Mircosoft and IBM wanted computers to be consumer products. We are now there. Ubuntu is for those users who want a consumer product type OS and not a flat pack OS or a DIY OS.
    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

    Re: Windows, Mac and Linux

    True story: Yesterday I took my ancient Wacom tablet to a friend's house because she has got into Photoshop editing.
    She is running XP so I went to the Wacom site and searched for the driver, no results for the model number. OK I will just plug it in, Windows says that it has found a HID device but it did not work.
    Today I just plug the tablet into my laptop and it is recognised as a Graphire tablet and works 100%.
    I searched online for the model number and it is indeed a Graphire 1 (an ET-0405-U to be exact)
    The moral is that Linux has come a long way and actually is superior to other OSs.
    I'm glad that my link made you smile. Peace.

    Ha. I bought a Wacom Bamboo recently and exactly the same thing happened. Windows 7? What's that thing you plugged in? My minimal install with Xfce? A Wacom Bamboo. Ready to roll, what shall we do? Open Gimp and start playing? Fine, no problem. Good to go.
