So over the weekend I put Ubuntu on my Wind. It honestly went suspiciously smoothly. I went for Pho with my friends, went to my buddies house, bummed a usb stick from the other. Loaded Ubuntu onto the stick with unetbootin... which was awesomely easy. Booted it, installed it, the only sticking point being to setup wireless. Last night I setup my data partition to mount on boot and a few other tweaks and its hot fire.
Oh and Photobook.app takes backwards shots :P
