Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Like Ubuntu's Unity interface? Great. If not, you can easily change it to look and act like Ubuntu used to. This tutorial shows how.

Nice but...

While this tutorial is nice and you've put lots of work and time into it...It's still DAUNTING to see the huge amount of work it takes to have a "working" system, something that fits your needs. And yet, Ubuntu is supposed to be the most user-friendly. Look at the huge tutorials on the Ubuntu Forum...With unexpected results and lots of tweaking. Crazy. When I think about a friend I visited these days, who baught a brand new laptop with Windows 7 and who was mad at the computer because it was always interfering, asking to update AsusBios Update, Default Browser selection. She said she would be a lot of money to get rid of these annoyances. She never knows what to respond when these message pop up. I thought...Try Linux, you'll see what a headache and waste of time mean. And we're in 2012 and things haven't changed much.

Ubuntu never was the "easiest linux", it was just the most popular for personal use. Since Unity arrived Ubuntu has dropped in popularity. If you check out Distrowatch you will see Mint is much more popular these days. Installation is dead simple and in most instances it "just works".
