I use a little utility called PureText under Windows to copy & paste formatted content as pure text. Is there an equivalent to this for Linux users (specifically Ubuntu)? I hope to be switching in a couple of weeks. !

I don't have a definite answer to your question, as I never really felt the need for something similar.

In ubuntu I commonly use ctrl-shift-v do do special pastes (including "paste as simple text").

I just thought to mention it, in case you didn't know about this possibility.
