    this is nice. I wonder if it supports dual monitors. So very nice. I feel like a hyprid between mac and windows.

    Yes (Install CD and Live CD) and yes.
    Pick one of the mirrors or use a torrent: http://www.ubuntulinux.org/download/

    You can also order the 64 CD per the usual Ubuntu offer - which is what brought me to have their distro in my pending tray, it just saves that bit of bandwidth and is so friendly that you get to save your media and have a nice lil set in printed sleeves..... I know it's not what you asked Perris - but for others who come to the thread see here if that's what you want... :cool:

    Bear in mind that any CD's you order now won't ship until a couple of weeks after 'Hoary' is released, which is going to be sometime in mid-April.

    That's what the Live CD is for - to play with it without actually installing it. :)

    I cant get Ubuntu to work on my machine.

    It boots up and loads Ubuntu and does all its work. A screen with Ubuntu and a loading bar shows and completes then goes to a black screen with a "_" flashing then reboots and continues the cycle :dead:
