Here's a guy with a great desktop setup! He's using a touchscreen and Linux.
I tried playing with Linux (Kubuntu, to be specific), but it was just too frustrating for me. I love the idea. I enjoyed most of the experience. But installing applications and figuring out the drivers -- oh, man. I would certainly put Linux on a machine that I intended to use for the basics. I put it on a computer for my grandmother, who only wanted e-mail and Web access.
I know there are a lot of Linux true believers, and I'm still open to being a true believer. But for now put me down as a Linux-sympathetic Windows guy.
