I installed [[Ubuntu_Linux|Linux]] – on a laptop no less – and Everything Worked. Everything fucking worked, good as gold, nice as can be.
Everything. Fucking. Worked.
Observe, one hour after installation:
It worked. It all worked!
Gobsmacking aside, I’m really very impressed at how far (certain) Linux distributions have come in terms of polish and accessibility. When I last seriously played with Linux, under Gentoo, you had to pick one or the other unless you were a bored hacker with even more time than a stockroom worker in a retail store.
Fair play, Ubuntu!

Thank you Mariah for the best birthday present. Ever.
