Bill Clinton: Linux Enthusiast?

According to former president Bill Clinton: all you need is ubuntu. I actually installed the latest version of Ubuntu on my home PC this week. It was probably the least painful Linux install I've ever done on that computer. Only weird things I had to do was install a Nvidia driver (apt get nvidia-glx) and then reconfigure X. I only had to do that so I could my monitor's native 1280x1024 resolution instead of the 1024x768 Ubuntu came up with at first. Maybe I should try it on my laptop, since there appears to be a lot of other people installing on the same laptop I have. Of course the volume of info on this subject also suggests that there are a lot of problems with doing it!
