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.

Yes, there's a switch happening.
It's now 2007, and Operating Systems (all of them) are maturing and refining themselves to the point where almost any average user can install and use them with little problem.
DOS is dead, Command Line is arcane and becoming un-necessary,
and Ease-of-Use is now paramount if you want any kinda market share.
Yes..the vote is being split, and even I am fooling around with Linux(Ubuntu!) SUCCESSFULLY,
after much dabbling and returning to Windoze: that says a LOT.
Look for more switching as Ubuntu refines itself, and as Freespire gets advanced.
Linux is on the brink of Arriving - it's about bloody time, dontcha think?
