Doing an install tonight of Linux Mint 10 if all goes well. I'm looking forward to it. Have used various linux distributions over the years, but wiping Windows off of the laptop tonight.
I used to feel stuck with Windows on the system because of Netflix, but we finally got rid of it. I've still got some things I'll have to look into, ie some video sites (veetle player), kids flash games, citrix plugin for firefox would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath, DVD video creation from avi files, dvd ripping process, etc., but I feel excited to get going.
