Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You beat me to it by a week.  I have a disk (kubuntu 6.10), and I'm ready to just wipe out windows.  But...I do have one favour to ask--if you're game.  (Or if anyone else knows the answer.)

Can you read in the pics from a digital camera?  If so, can kubuntu read the install disks that come with a camera, or is something more tricky involved?

I ask because when I said, "Hey, I could just..." do exactly what you've done (but killing windows not MacOSX), I received a nod from my wife, followed five minutes later by a concerned face and the question:

"Are you sure it will still take photos?"

[For any supertech heads, the camera is a Canon DIGITAL IXUS 75]

Like I said, I'm hoping to switch next week (I could try to go dual boot, but like you'd I'm sorta thinking...hey...just wipe the old one off the disk and load the new...and then read the various manuals...)


btw, if I get it to work I promise to write instructions for all the non-tech people.
