Default Just installed Linux

Windows crashed this afternoon and I had earlier made a Ubuntu cd for my friend. I just installed Ubuntu and I love it.

Yeah, it's pretty good. I still use Windows, but Ubuntu is by far my favorite Linux distro.

Yeah, I completely agree with David and dude.

It's hard to get a lot of drivers, and the programs I'm used to on Windows aren't supported in Linux or are very different.

the only thing missing from linux that I need is games. And maybe some other smaller stuff, but overall it has almost everything I need. Ohh and drivers? Since when did you actually need drivers with linux?

My printer never worked and neither did my wireless USB adapter, that was the biggest thing.
