I am relatively new to Linux, but have been extremely pleased with everything and find myself using Ubuntu 95% of the time. My only lingering issue is with Pandora. Whether I use Firefox or Chrome, Pandora plays fine as long as I keep my "activity" low. As soon as I start opening and closing tabs at a moderate pace, the player crashes and I have to reload the page in order to hear music again. My specs are in my signature. I tried the Flash-Aid plugin for Firefox, but still have issues. Thanks for any thoughts/ideas.
