Which seams to be easier for everyone? I have Vista and every other day is something different. One day I can use adb push the next day my driver is different and wont switch back.

I have used ubuntu before and I like it, but for doing things to my g1, is it the better choice?

if you have used ubuntu before then i strongly suggest dual booting. there are some advantages of using vista(not for android but other stuff), and ubuntu has really become a great operating system as of late. for new people that have never touched or (knowingly)seen linux then i would say try ubuntu for a week and decide for yourself. personally i use ubuntu all the time and only use a Vbox when i need windows for the occasional game of Sims
