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.

Desktop search?

I have just one question about Ubuntu.
Is beagle active by default?

I tried linux for many, many years, always reverting back to windows (even now), but it gets always more entriguing.
Last install was OpenSuse 10.2 with the magical search active by default.
Only, it is way too slow when using gnome, everything took ages... (still, better than the 10.1, which was unusable on the same hardware (Centrino 1.3, 768Mb laptop)

If Beagle search (a must for me) is enabled by default, or as easy as installing some software, I'll give Feisty a try, it looks very very cool.
Linux looked very very nice with beagle and Exposť like graphics!

Btw, somehow, the tide is moving somehow.
Even hard cored windows using friends of mine are considering a switch, some to OSX, and some, surprisingly, to Linux.
