Protip, I have a huge penis. Hope that helps!
I also run Linux and Amazon's video and mp3 services work just fine for me. The former requires flash which works well enough on linux, the latter even has a native linux binary

You do? You understand why some people "hate" a guy that has created thousands of jobs, a wildly profitable US company, and is doing more to help the global effort against AIDS and hunger than (most likely) any other individual on earth? So the OS isn't the best and they aren't great about adhering to open standards or publishing their source code... Hate is isn't felt by any sane person towards Bill Gates.
