    I'd like to go completely to Unbuntu, but I'm not sure I can get my at&t data card to work flawlessly. Is there any way to run ubuntu from a flash drive? I have Vista Home premium, and it works and does whatever I want it to, but it is also doing tons of shit I don't want it to. Is there any thing like readyboost for unbuntu, also? I love that feature of Vista.

    why the fuck would you have an at&t data card? Did you purposely go around town asking for the slowest provider?

    No. around here AT&T 3G is faster than anything else I tried. Plus sprint and verizon have shitty coverage here and t-mobile is non-existant.

    rofl, ignorance is bliss. Verizon and Sprint EVDO Rev A both test between 3 and 10 times faster than UMTS

    you must live in the boonies. Been all over the west coast, and in major cities on the east coast and Sprint always gave me more bars than at&t

    In North Georgia. Here sprint is hit or miss until atlanta, but further north in the mountains= nothing. Verizon is the same way. At&t is more consistent which I'll take over rapid speeds in a very limited area that I rarely visit.
