   If flash is bothering you, its quite easy to just install the linux

   Sabayon linux is a multimedia powerhouse.  Definately needs some good

      My problem is that I haven't done a linux install since before
      FreeBSD 2.2 IIRC and have no idea which version would be the most
      versatile and has an installer that is basically brain dead simple
      with most all drivers.  I suspect that I am asking the impossible

     Maybe PC-BSD or Sabayon Linux. Sabayon is based on gentoo and
     lots of proprietory drivers built in. So, if you have no problem
     with that maybe
     you could look at Sabayon Linux too.

     I've never heard of Sabayon but will definitely give it a shot on
     my laptop first and take a good look at the licensing.
     I really like the idea of PC-BSD but the Flash thing, holds me back
     a bit.
