[lug] fun articles about Linux from a Windows user's standpoint

This guy did a pretty "fun" job comparing some distros and talking  
about the problems that complete Linux newbies invariably run into.

His stories of fighting with a widescreen laptop and the Intel  
810/915 type video chipset made me laugh out loud -- been there, done  

And his responses to some of the typical fan-boy Linux user  
challenges he received via e-mail after article #1 are funny enough  
to retain a sense of humor but still cover the important topic of why  
people switch over to Linux.  His jabs at the money/marketing of  
Apple also ring funny.

Pretty entertaining for a Linux distro round-up.  Wow did he get some  
strange distro recommendations, or what?  Although I'm SURE that's  
common for many switchers... hundreds of distros, you're bound to run  
across folks with their favorite "pet" distro who will claim it's  
better than toasted bread with butter and jam on top.
