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.

shrug,
all my hardware works, software too. In 2002 most linux distros had a lot of problems with a lot of hardware. Nowadays this is not the case (mostly).
Problems listed make Ubuntu still "enthusiast OS" not mainstream.


Again, it is not how much you or I spent on Arch configuration, but about Feisty for average user. I doubt that average user will be pleased with scratchy sound not to mention other problems.
