Over at ITWorld, I wrote up a 10-minute Ubuntu setup guide that walks through three key areas: installing all the proprietary tools you're used to having, including MP3, AVI, Flash and Microsoft-standard fonts; enabling DVD reading and playback; and setting up Ubuntu Tweak, which gives Linux newcomers an easy solution to installing third-party apps and tweaking their setup to be just perfect.
