Recently I have been having problems with Facebook, in Ubuntu...I have read something about Shockwave not being supported... O'Well...

I also use a Microscope - Dino-Lite "DinoCapture" in Windows...found no usable Linux app yet... another...O'Well..

That's my two bit..

Is there a reason you dont use VMWare's Unity feature? Could use Windows apps in Ubuntu integrated....

Thats what I plan to use for Microsoft Office at least.
