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.

Here in PPC land one is grateful for any distro that still supports this architecture. However, having tried to load FF Herd 4 recently and failing because of blank screen problems, and then going to 6.06 LTS, and encountering the same difficulty (tabbing for different options did not work either) I can only say that Ubuntu for me has been a disappointing experience.

For overall polish and functionality from the get-go I am almost tempted to build an x86 box just for Sabayon Linux. Or Just wait until Mandriva comes up with the latest PPC goods.
