I'm accelerating my demicrosoftification project by doing this. I tried Ubuntu but I'm tired of fighting with buggy or non-existent drivers, and the hassle of having to patch things all the time. The only reason I've steered clear of OSX is I hate being forced to use Apple hardware to run it, especially at their high prices. At this point I figure I'll make the sacrifice to get something that's stable. I'm sure I'll always have one foot in the M$ world because I work in IT, but for my own use, it's well on its way out the door. All I needed was to make sure I'm not losing any functionality by switching, and worst case I can run Windless in a virtual machine for those few programs where I have no other choice. Having to rework my keyboard drivers and other conlang-oriented stuff was one thing holding me back.
