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.

Dont have much gripe with this article, just one mistake:
you dont need ndiswrapper for bcm43xx chips, all you need to do is add the firmware:
sudo apt-get install bcm43xx-fwcutter

The reason for not having the firmware is ofcourse that broadcom does not allow for the firmware to be distributed with linux distros.
