It always makes me wonder if I'm the only one that has zero problems with sound? Or pretty much anything? Am I just that lucky and skillful and freaking awesome in selecting hardware?
Well, last time I had to reinstall my work PC it took at least half a day, what with hunting down the driver CDs (without which even the ethernet port didn't work, so no downloading them), and figuring out which license keys to use, and where to download every individual software package.
Oh wait, got it a bit mixed up. Nops, Linux also works fine for me, last reinstall took at most half an hour to get the system running, which happily included office, and about another half hour to remember which other packages to apt-get.
For me Linux on the desktop happened several years ago, I'm not even bothering to install dual-boot anymore.
