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.

you can also just use the Kubuntu tools for this, configuring X has been no problem in Kubuntu for years. Ubuntu is sometimes behind in weird ways (eg I couldn't live without a decent CD burning tool like K3B, or a menu editor). The new gnome also catches up in the security area, finally offering encryption & signing of files and emails. It's getting better, and ahead of windows anyway ;-)
