Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "I like Ubuntu. With each incarnation I'm seeing improvements and betterments that make the OS better, more robust, more user friendly and more fully-featured. In fact, Ubuntu 8.04 is the first Linux distro that I've come across that I would consider loading onto my notebook to replace Windows. Throughout my testing Ubuntu 8.04 beta has been reliable and performed flawlessly. Bottom line, Hardy Heron is, for me at least, the best Linux distro ever," writes Adrian Kingsley-Hughes.

I am using Mandriva Powerpack. This far a good and solid distro, but I will absolutely not recommend it to beginners. Not newbie friendly.

Why not? How is Mandriva less user friendly than Ubuntu? In fact, Mandriva was the pioneer of the user friendly linux desktop. Yes there were some missteps along the way but things are real good nowadays.
In fact, it would nice to see a comparison of Mandriva too.
