    It's more complicated than just using it. I just installed Ubuntu for the first time over the past week on my PC and just got it working and installed the way I like it. It's less of a "how do you use it" question but more of a "how do I do this certain thing" type thing...at least that's what I did. I searched for every problem I had or thing I had to do on a separate basis.

    Also the fact that Ubuntu pretty much does everything for you helps as well. I'd say wait until Yellow Dog Linux comes out so everything can be happy and installed automatically. I'm doing that myself.

    Uh...okay. You still need a general knowledge of how to use linux in order to understand what you're trying to use. Granted each distro has it's own ways of doing things (like package management and ect.) so I can see what you mean.

    Also I don't see any reason why you couldn't install anything unless you're not connected online or something.

    Can't wait 'till Ubuntu is available on the PS3 (it should already work actually).

    fluxbuntu is currently working on an "ubuntu" image for the PS3. It should be out soon. They are need some PS3 testers.
