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.

//Has anyone tried installing it as a dual boot between Windows and Ubuntu?//

Yes. Just install Windows first to a blank hard disk, but do not use the whole disk ... leave about 30 GB unused (or at least 8 GB) for a decent Linux install.

Once you have gone through the painful Windows install process, then install Ubuntu from a liveCD, and select the option "install to unused space of hard disk" during the install sequence from the liveCD. You will automatically end up with a correct dual-boot installation.
