I've been an Ubuntu user from the beginning. However, it was a hassle to install codecs and continuously tweak the system. After installing Bea, my video playback problems have been solved. Divx, WMV, asf, and mpg files are all playing back superbly. I still need to test some music files to check codec compatibility. Also, when I get somewhere with a wireless connection, I need to test that out. I'm currently deployed in the Military, so I need a stable, all-in-one OS solution. Bea is great. Thanks.
