there's a sort of high school mystery/drama on at the moment called Veronica Mars. it's not brilliant, but the episode i just watched contained a scene with two students arguing about the merits of Ubuntu Linux.

Well, that's an easy argument to settle: Ubuntu freakin' rocks.

yeah, well, the funny bit was that the one kid was trying to convince the other that she should install Ubuntu on her Mac rather than using OSX

The one kid was right!

Just last night I did a fresh install of Hoary Hedgehog on my laptop. It works like a charm (x.org and everything) but I was crushed to discover that there are no more hot naked chicks as the default desktop background. I hope they bring them back.

I guess that isn't too likely. One of the big appeals of Ubuntu is that it is very close to 100% Libre out of the box. So you'd be on your own to configure binary-only drivers for the ATI crapware.
