Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Bang on target, the new version of Ubuntu Linux is available for our downloading pleasure. Amongst various changes it sports updates to the installer, improved networking, and a new 'Mobile USB' version geared towards the blossoming netbook market. Grab a copy from the Ubuntu website, and check out Linux Format's hands-on look. Or the one at Simple Thoughts. Or the one at PolishLinux. And probably a few other websites as well.

"A windows installation allows you to keep data files in a separate partition, but it is hard to keep all your settings in a separate partition as those are stored in the registry and $Documents and Settings, so what you are saying is not comparable to putting home on its own partition.

/home keeps everything, settings, bookmarks, background, etc."

Never said otherwise. I was just saying it can be done, to include the whole Documents and Settings folder existing elsewhere besides the C drive. Or rather the people folders in them.

It all becomes a moot point when the / takes up the whole hard drive so reinstalling wipes out the home folder. All too common unfortunately.
