I've dual booted Vista and Ubuntu on my HP computer because Vista is driving me nuts. At least Linux would have an excuse for not working perfectly. I've read that Linux interacts with many things or has programs that do the same tasks as Windows programs. Will the iPad be able to interact with Linux and its programs or will I still need Windows to interact with the iPad? I know that there isn't an iTunes for Linux but there are iPod compatible programs available. Since the iPad OS is the iPhone OS, there must be Linux users with iPhones that can attest to how an iPhone interacts with a Linux computer. Please do let me know how it is done and how well it works.
