Eh, the worst Nikon is still pretty good, you shouldn't take Ken Rockwell out of his own context. He tends to make good points, but every opinion he puts on his site is tongue-in-cheek.
That said, from what I've seen, the D40 still has the better sensor unless you care about megapixels. And the sensor really is all that matters. That does not alluva sudden make the Canon a better option. It could be, if you like it better, but not because Ken Rockwell said something about...
Build quality of the 18-55 is so-so, image quality is very nice. You could also look for the 18-70 (cheap on ebay, great lens), the 35 1.8, and forget about the tele.
Both cameras take great pictures, both take great lenses, but you don't want to switch brands later on. So don't worry about specs, the quality of the kitlens, ignore deals. Just find out which of the two feels right and go for it.

Eh, can't be done, but it's something like this today. Might put the early stuff higher other days. Rubber Sould and Sgt. Pepper are in lead consistently however
I guess most current fans, and recent converts, dig In Absentia most. They really made a stylistic switch there. I'm a pre- In Absentia fan and for me it's very hard to pick between Lightbulb Sun, Signify or even Recordings. Stupid Dream has always been a bit too weird, and while I love the early experimental krautrock experimentation those albums weren't as strong as say Lightbulb Sun.
Go widescreen and go as large as you can afford. You'll wonder how you ever got by without all that screen real-estate. The height of a screen rarely matters, but being able to put things next to eachother is a real win. Some of the programmers I work with have tried widescreen in portrait mode, as it in theory lets you view lots of code at once, but none of them stuck with it: it doesn't matter as much as say, have a browser window within easy reach, or readable width...
The pick for best is easy: Radiohead - Kid A
Runner up though... There are so many I loved this past decade...
Aimee Mann - Lost in Space
Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People
Evagelista - Hello Voyager
Portishead - Third
Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun
But the most amazing show was Kaki King this year, blew me away. So her most interesting album, Until We Felt Red is my runner up.

I quit somewhere halfway part III... story just didn't work for me.
Reading: The Making of the Atomic Bomb. Must read for anyone with any scientific interest!
I'm almost through its 800+ pages and kinda wondering what next... Perhaps another Hemingway...
