The switch to Ubuntu

I've been disrespecting Microsoft for years now (mostly, I'm against monopolies). It seems it's time for me to hitch my wagon to some flavor of Linux. I'm starting with Ubuntu 8.10. I've tested it many times on a few different computers. Today I have committed to limiting my computer use at home to Linux.

If I land some Notes/Domino consulting work, I'll have to sort out what I'm going to do for Domino Designer.

The 8.10 install is very straightforward. "Out of the box" it has everything I need for home use.

I'm going to research small business costs for Microsoft licensing, and see about helping businesses and individuals make the same switch to Linux.
