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."

What part of "w/o having to edit text files" don't you understand?


Oh my.....
One can open a console and paste&run following command

[command]
sudo echo "deb http://ch.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu dapper main restricted universe multiverse" >> /etc/apt/sources.list && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx
[/command]
[PUSH ENTER]
[WAIT]
[oh ... what a funny matrix-style screensaver]
[WAIT]
[WAIT]
[DRINK A BEER]
[DONE]

4 easy steps..

Of course, the absolute majority of the reader on this site should have no problems with somethin as trivial as that, but I don't think an OS can qualify as Desktop compatible if you have edit text files to use advanced features of that OS.


And IMHO console belongs to the desktop and there is nothing wrong it!

If you/they dont like it - go, spend 1000e,buy Windows &Anti* Co. and save us some time

EOT.
