"Being a technology enthusiast, I decided to install the 64-bit
version of Ubuntu on my new Toshiba laptop, equipped with an AMD
Turion 64 X2 dual core processor. Most of the applications in
Ubuntu's repositories have been recompiled for 64-bit support, so
productivity is not a problem. Even the restricted drivers, such as
the ATI frglx and the Atheros MadWifi drivers, came precompiled. I
was writing documents, browsing the Web, chatting with Ekiga, and
listening to music almost as soon as Ubuntu was installed. The
joyride came to an end when I tried to find a video for one of my
favorite new songs on YouTube. Apparently, the only plugin
available for Flash video was the open source player Gnash, but it
would not even display the YouTube video player."
