Managed to get my iPhone to talk to Linux. Two packages are needed: ipod-convenience and gtkpod. And the good news is, both packages can be installed via Ubuntu’s Synaptic Package Manager (System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager). Read Ubuntu’s guide to using an iPhone or iPod Touch.
I also realized GIMP can actually replace Photoshop if you are desperate. Though GIMP lacks some functions and tools, it’s sufficient for my image editing needs.

I surf the net a lot so this is really a problem for me. I’ll see if I can get it fixed. Update: It’s only slow with Gmail.
So that’s day 2 of my life without Windows. I don’t feel like I’m missing much, except maybe for my bookmarks on my Firefox in Windows. And most of all, I rather have Windows Live Messenger. People are complaining that my nick looks funny and I have no way of changing it.
8 more days to go.
