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'm impressed with Ubuntu. I have a Intel-based Mac Mini and for the sake of doing it I booted it with a Kubuntu-flavored Ubuntu Live CD. It recognized everything, including the Bluetooth. It was fast even for a live CD.

NFS is insecure and I never use it. SMB when I am connected to a McSoft network. Ubuntu does an extremely good job of recognizing McSoft networks.

Most of the time I just adjust my ssh port to a non standard port and use encryption and compression to move or secure copy files.
