Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system - so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions. This latest Ubuntu release, which became available in June, has won our ardor with a tight focus on desktop usability; an extremely active, helpful and organized user community; and a software installation and management framework that's unsurpassed on any OS platform."

Still not ready for prime time

Ubuntu makes it very compelling to make the switch from Windows to Linux. I almost used Ubuntu exclusively every-day, except for a few things that kept me switching back and forth via KVM. MP3's, Stupid pages that require IE (like my bank), and this annoying habit of not keeping my monitor /video resolution to 1280x1024 - although I can edit or run commands, I could not save the xorg.config to not allow 640x480 or keeep 1280x1024.

I'm going to mostly blame my inexperience.
I'm still positive about Ubuntu - the video problem
is the main killer here.

I suppose I need "command lines for dummies" or learning XORG in a nutshell.
