Good news indeed - also for the others on the list who want to do the same.

When you've worked seriously with Linux for a while and see what it can 
do on a wider scale and in professional environments, who is going for 
it and why and who supports it, you'll be glad. As time goes by, more 
and more desktop stuff will come along and things like this will get 
easier. To me, at any rate, using Linux instead of Windows - however 
good "new" Windows versions might be - means gaining utter power and the 
peace of mind that knowing that no-one's constantly trying to screw me 
when my back's turned brings ;)
