I got Ubuntu installed. It was pretty painless. The installer is very

easy to use and quick. Now I need to figure out which app to use to manage my iPod. There are a number of choices. I want one that works with pdocasts and syncs them properly to my iPod so they keep bookmarks. After that i need to get my T-Mobile MDA to sync with Evolution. If I can get those two things working, I think I’ll be able to stick with it this time.
