LaTeX3.1415926 on Win7x64 = pain, on Ubuntu 10.10 = pleasure

I can't be bothered ranting...title said it all. I wasted a good 2-3 hours setting stuff up on Windows (and didn't get there), it was like 2 commands on Ubuntu Linux Maverick Meerkat (10.10). Those two commands were discovered by typing the commands found at:
http://www.ringlord.com/publications/latex-pdf-howto/

Basically typing latex and thumbpdf, and following the Ubuntu command prompt instructions. Kind of felt like xkcd's python:
http://www.xkcd.com/353/
import antigravity

<3 Ubuntu + LaTeX, especially awesome for all the math-oriented stuff. Donald Knuth's years of toiling were not in vain!
