Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's been like 3 hours without an Ubuntu article, so here we go. "With the release of Ubuntu 7.04, Feisty Fawn, I naturally couldn't resist taking Kubuntu, my preferred Ubuntu version, for a quick spin on my trusty old Thinkpad testbed. Here is a six-step process through which I speedily arrived at a highly usable, fully capable desktop Linux system."

I've got latest Lenovo/IBM ThinkPad T60p two weeks ago and Ubuntu Feisty miserably fails to load !!!
I made sure installation CD is OK by installing Ubuntu on other PC ( Dell Optiplex 500 MHz Pentium III ) where it detects Crustal Sound chip but for no obvious reason unloads kernel module I need for my sound card.
On same laptop PCLinuxOS Test 4 runs very well ( does not detects wireless card and screen resolution was only 1024x748). Mepis 6.5 choses better screen resoultion 1280X1024 but styill no wi-fi connection. On this same machine Xandros Desktop 4 is clear winner setting up correct screen resolution to 1600x1200.
I think this was last chance I gave Ubuntu on my machines.
For older CPU there's nothing better than Vector 5.8.
or SAM Linux which is charming xfce desktop I used to revive my old Compaq Armada v300 ( 466 MHz Celeron )
