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.

It's OK

After trying it on a couple of PCs at work, I went back to SimplyMepis. Ubuntu is OK, but it's no where near as good or ready to use as SimplyMepis.

I do have a PC using Gnome but with VidaLinux (Gentoo) which I also found to be superior to Ubuntu. I let others use it, but they preferred SimplyMepis.

I don't understand why the plugins couldn't be installed or ready to install with a simple click like in SimplyMepis and Libranet.

At least it's a decent beginning, not a great one, but decent.
