I have exactly the same feelings as I tried Ubuntu which should be easy.
CD-ROM quit working during installation,
gfx had only svga resolution available
- took one night to figure out how to shut X and add screenmodes,
sfx card did not get working.
Besides all that I still have no music making tools..
I will give Amiga another try. Will use it for anything possible with it.
I'll have a Wintel machine for making serious audio production.
And a Laptop for Internet browsing.
One day, I'll move the audio production to Mac, when I have some more bucks.
