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.

{ Ubuntu doesn't come with smb or nfs by default. Like Eugenia said, you open up the networking config tool and it prompts to install nfs and/or smb. }

That is what I did. I just went to the Kubuntu "System Settings"
http://www.kubuntu.org/docs/kquickguide/C/ch03s07.html
... then to "internet & network" and then "sharing"
http://www.kubuntu.org/docs/kquickguide/C/ch03s07.html#sect-sharing
... and clicked "administrator mode" ... and Ubuntu told me I needed NFS and Samba to be installed, and then after I allowed it to, Ubuntu automatically downloaded and installed them both for me.
