A while back I bought a Kindle Fire, rooted it with BurritoRoot, and put the Android Market on it (with Go Launcher Ex as a launcher because its amazing). I always wanted an e-book reader, and an Android tablet and this took care of both. After having the Kindle Fire for a while, I thought it'd be cool if my phone could do the stuff it does. So, I ended up buying a Samsung Infuse 4G. I had some issues with the rooting process on Windows, so I booted into Linux and it went much smoother. TBH, I've always had issues with Windows and USB devices, and Windows 7 hasn't been any better for me. I'm seriously considering switching to Linux as my primary OS because of recent experiences. Plus, I'd save money on software licensing.
Also, if I could change my username I'd probably go with either Droid Rage, or LinuX11
