Re: I really prefer Linux over everything else

 Something that is surprisingly nicer on Ubuntu: DVD playback.  On Ubuntu 
I can just start watching.  On a Macintosh I have to wait through the 
mandatory trailers and other nonsense.  Being properly licensed, Apple 
is obligated to to honor the disc's "you must watch" settings.  Ubuntu, 
being unauthorized, has applications that let me skip right to the content. 

That said, we do sit through the mandatory trailers because my wife's 
Mac notebook has a 17-inch screen, with a wider viewing angle than my 
Panasonic W4.
