Just to inform you guys. We're on the front page of The Star In Tech
yesterday (11 December 2007). There's a step by step installation for
"general malaysian" user of all the important stuff (MP3, streamyx etc).
Good to see that Ubuntu is going to prime time. 

Regarding the PC, I think Intel supports Linux better at this point of
time so its a good start. But to run santa rosa-based processor you must
go for Gutsy. Feisty does not support it natively.
