I have found that HP laptops support ubuntu really well, though this is a personal experience here at my university. I have seen about 20 HP laptop (Compaq, HP Compaq and HP Pavilion) and about 10-12 desktops (Compaq and HP) migrating to ubuntu. Only some had a minor graphics issue, but oh well, they have an ATI! Mostly, I have found that with a small playing arount with backports and restricted packages, ubuntu works seamlessly! Yay! \o/

Since the first camera was invented by Ibn al-Haytham, photography has evolved, changed and developed to a great deal. Today’s powerful digital cameras can compete with their film or reel counterparts. Photography is more of an addiction than a hobby. It’s all about finding the beauty in anything. A glass of water may seem beautiful, or even a leaf lying on green grass. It’s all about how we shape it and capture it, and finally, how we set it as our ubuntu wallpaper! (jk)

I think there would be some who love capturing like I do.
For the same reason, I’ve started this group for Ubuntu Photographers:

With more and more users switching to 64-bit computing to exploit the CPU’s full potential, the amd64 architecture has given a new dimension to day to day computing. 64-bit computing was used in supercomputers in 1960s and servers since early 1990s. Any 64-bit processor can emulate a 32-bit architecture. They not only address more memory but perform much better in cases of intensive computing, virtualization and gaming.

Personally with an OS of amd64 architecture, I always have Windows running on a virtualbox on a separate workspace while I work smoothly on the main one. I must say that I could do this with i386 also, though this seems to add up to my performance. Ubuntu amd64 has almost all associated packages available now. I must say that I’m in love with amd64!
