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 am still just dumbfounded that someone could actually claim that Ubuntu is somehow easier to install AND more likely to support hardware than Windows XP/Vista.

I read every day. I do this because I am interested in operating systems.

I am not obsessed with Microsoft in any way. I actually prefer the user experience of BeOS and the various Apple operating systems.

However, to claim that Linux is "easier" to deal with than Windows Xp/Vista is just intellectually dishonest in every way.

If you want to be a Linux evangelist, talk about security, servers, or attempt to explain some kind of open source philosophy.

Just be honest, please. If you lie, people will not listen to you.
