    I am a new Kindle user as well and have been using it heavily. The battery life will not disappoint! 2 weeks of almost constant use and I am at half battery.

    [ubuntu] Re: Encryption

    That does not seem very easy or convenient. I guess if I go with System76 I could always just re-install ubuntu, choose encryption, then reload the drivers.

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox 3.0.12 available

    The last annoyance I had was the whole OpenOffice lack of upgrade for 8.10...now this firefox 3.5 failure. These are things which should be priorities to update...even in the middle of a distro.

    Re: Has anyone ever emailed Shuttleworth?

    Not exactly apples to apples comparisons there lol...but Warren Buffett takes lots of time to talk to people. That is why he is referred to as the billionaire next door, he is very down to earth.

    Re: which free email?

    There is just no comparison to Gmail. Yahoo beats them for storage space but their interface is horrid and they do not support IMAP unless you pay. Gmail all the way.
