comment Different package manager: Why?
Then why don't you just use TeXLive on both Windows and Linux? That would give you the same package manager, and as a user, you can just pretend MikTeX does not exist. However, I think there is probably a reason number of people choose MikTeX when using Windows.

comment TeX Live 2011 vs Ubuntu TeX Live
@egreg: Symlinks to binaries should ideally be made in /usr/local/bin. Since apt-get runs as root, and root typically does not have /usr/local/bin in path, there should not be any conflict. If you for some reason need to have /usr/local/bin in your path, you may want to skip making the symlinks, and add the TeXLive bin directory to your users (but not roots) path.

comment TeX Live 2011 vs Ubuntu TeX Live
@daleif: I believe the comment on the page refers to the fact that packages for TeXLive 2012 are now in Debian testing, so if you are using Debian testing or any distribution based on that, 2012 is your default TeXLive distribution. However, the comment is misleading, since Debian stable (which is what should be referred to as "Debian") still has TeXLive 2009.

comment TeX Live 2011 vs Ubuntu TeX Live
It may be also worth noting that Debian testing has the prerelease 2012 packages now, so it is quite likely that the next release of Ubuntu will have TeXLive 2012.

comment Install Vim and Latex suite
As far as I can tell, there is no confirmation. Try :help latex-suite to see if the help tags were generated correctly. Other than that, to see if your setup is working, the best way is to open a tex file. You should automatically have TeX syntax highlighting, and the gvim menus should contain the latex-suite commands. You should have TeX-Suite, TeX-Environments and few other menus like that. Using the LaTeX suite compile command (I believe the default is \ll) should compile your file, the view cammand (\lv) should launch a dvi or pdf viewer with your document in it.
