Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

I can't really elaborate on this because my machine is a CoreDuo with 2 GB RAM and is really fast. Most people still use PIII/P4 and it would be unfair to say it's "fast" and then not get the same performance on their computers. So, I don't know.

However, I did notice some things:
1. My other Ubuntu Feisty installation under VMWare on my 3 Ghz P4 desktop is pretty fast, if that's an indication.
2. It displays HD 1080p video without dropping any frames, while my 3 Ghz P4 desktop and my other 2.8 Ghz P4 laptop do drop frames.

But overall, on *my* new laptop computer is responsive, yeah.
