I'd definitely buy ebooks if I could, but there is no way I am installing Windows or MacOS on any of my systems. BTW, I upgraded 3 of our machines to Ubuntu 10.04, it really makes a great desktop system, my 10 year old daughter loves it
Have you considered running winxp or macos in a vmplayer image? VMplayer makes a nice sandbox to keep the little buggers islolated. I like to play the 'old' dos/windows games so I keep some vm images tuked away under my ubuntu.
