Ubuntu Better than Vista?

OK, OK. I write about my kids a lot (they keep track so I have to mention them all equally). Here's another item courtesy of a young Barney, this one from 13-year-old David (for equality's sake, I need to point out that he has an older sister, Lauren, and a younger brother, Nick).

Dave, a Mac and Linux bigot, found a little story about a kid whose dad wanted him to get and install Vista. Instead the kid installed Ubuntu, and the dad has been raving about it ever since!
