Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

I installed Ubuntu about 2 weeks ago, after seeing the last review here. Now, I'm running it on my main PC, an old iMac, and my P3 500 laptop. It totally rules. I absolutely love it. After getting all the codecs and such, I can use it as my only OS, except for when I want to play games. I've been using Linux for years now, and this is the desktop distribution I've been waiting for. I love the new Gnome (KDE convert), the debian base (debian is on my two servers), the fantastic community, the default theme, everything. I've never enjoyed using Linux this much.
