I tried both Ubuntu and Kubuntu. Both installed without a hickup on two different systems, recognising all the hardware I throwed at it. Impressive...

Now - seeing all the debate about OpenOffice I would like to make two remarks:

1. This is not about OpenOffice - its about the final realease of Ubuntu/Kubuntu.

2. Even if you have to say something about OpenOffice lets get one thing straight.... It could be OpenOffice is lacking here and there, but dont forget one thing - it wont cost you anything! The cost of OpenOffice is nil, zero, nada! Now - ask yourself - are you prepared to fork out a LOT of money for MS-Office just to get the few items you are missing? Please...even if you payed half the price of MS-Office for it, OpenOffice would be real good value for money. But no - it wont cost you anything, so stop wailing and be thankfull to get a piece of complex software for free!!!

Now - back to Ubuntu/Kubuntu. I used the LiveCd version and install from that. The install went smooth fast and simple. I'm ready to explore everything a bit deeper, but found no show-stoppers sofar.
