1. NVidia's been having some trouble lately, and AMD has been doing an amazing job with their Linux drivers. Even better, AMD's moving ATi to an open source model (they're just working out licensing) so I'd recommend an ATi video card. The latest drivers from AMD even support redirected rendering for 3D on a 3D surface (like the cube), and Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, due out in April of next year, will have DRI2 (again, redirected rendering) working on the open source Radeon driver.

2. Your biggest issue will be a printer. HP and Epson are both very well supported. For other brands, check before you buy. Personally, I love my Epson.

Isn't Epson the company who puts the chip in their ink cartridges that registers when they're empty?

They all do that, I thought, and wants you to buy new ones even BEFORE they're empty .... Meh
Some of them even go further, they will refuse to print once the crartidge is one year old, empty or not.

And install a complete useless 'printer software suite' which fills your register and harddrive with more useless crap.
And of course all those applics wants to load at sys startup .... Meh
Me guess that HP is the champion of totally crap and needless printer software, but that's arguable.

Modern times ...... Sad

It'd be totally cool, Dosraider, if ink wasn't so damned expensive. What's up with that? Gotta be one HELL of a mark-up on it.
