Does anybody use Ubuntu?  I just downloaded it (trying to expand my computer knowledge) and was playing around with it.  Seems pretty cool, however I can't connect to the internet with it.  It reads my router and when I put in the password it doesn't work.  The password works with Windows no problem, as well as my Droid, and Blu-Ray player.  Any suggestions?

I think it's because I have a FiOS router.  When I got my Blu-Ray I had to do some funky stuff to the router so the player could read it. 

Also, I can't seem to access my pics and stuff.  I know there has got to be a way to access the files and data from the hard drive.  Sort of like a port to Windows.  I don't know.  Any ideas?

From what I've heard said about Ubuntu by friends/acquaintances it's not too bad, certainly improved from the earlier days but still somewhat problematic re: plug and play drivers, etc.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.
