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.

And what will you do when she needs to troubleshoot and repair Linux? Teach her the UNIX command line? How to calculate and add new modelines in xorg.conf? RTFM?

Linux may be easy as long as things just work but when things break or you need to do something that isn't covered by GUI tools the user is totally lost. And getting help with a highly complex system with such few users is not going to easy.

Convert people to Linux and you will probably be their computer tech for a very long time.
