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.

Funny you should mention that, since one of the biggest reasons why I'm not installing Ubuntu (I did install it a couple of times, just to try it out) is because their KDE implementation isn't very good.

No offense to the Kubuntu team, but the last time I installed Kubuntu (I think almost a year ago though), things were confusing, I had crashes (kicker, I think?) even after applying the updates and the polish left a lot to be desired.

OpenSuSe boots slow, applications start rather slow, but at least their KDE desktop is 'class'.

I've got nothing against Gnome, but KDE is the best fit for me. And Ubuntu, interesting as it is, can't win me over without a highly polished and stable KDE.
