Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "A friend of mine phoned to ask if I thought he should install Ubuntu Linux on his Macs - a 1.33 GHz G4 iBook currently running OS X 10.4 Tiger and a 1.25 GHz Power Mac G4 tower with OS X 10.3 Panther installed. My friend had read a feature in the local newspaper extolling the virtues of Ubuntu Linux and thought it sounded interesting. Does Ubuntu Linux make any sense for Macintosh users? In my friend's case, I would say no, and I did." My take: I wrote about this subject earlier.

<<Consequently, if I had a non-Apple PC, Ubuntu Linux would probably be my first choice of operating systems, but with a Mac, you already have the best operating system in world.>>
I must agree, having run "X"buntu, SLED and of course windows from DOS all the way to 11 currently running win XP and my home machine is an iMAC. The elegance and joy has returned to comututing for me. BTW, have tried em all: Mandrake 8.x to 9.1, SuSe 8X to 10, SLED, buntus, PCLinux, Vector, Mephis and the list goes on. Nothing compares to the MacOSX experience. Dang, hated typing this on my work PC XP! :-))
