Heh...  I started with Linux simply because it was a better network OS than
Windows, and I did all kinds of internetting.  Unfortunately, most of the time
I only have one computer, and I don't see much point in dualbooting... and
there's always the occasional software that I HAVE to run in Windows. 
(currently that would be Magicjack)

I haven't used Gentoo, never heard of funtoo.  Ubuntu is OK, has great support
and runs well, I just have to spend a day reworking and tweaking the desktop to
my liking. :)
