The Ubuntu experiment continues to go well. It's mainly non-remarkable, which is the way you want it. The OS just seems to perform well. Last night I used RhythmBox to rip some songs from a CD and it worked much better and easier than Windows Media Player. It loaded very fast and all I had to do was click the link to copy songs to my computer. No complaints from the family and, in fact, they like things like the wobbly windows and rotating cube. So far, so good.
