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.

Unless you use your desktop only for surfing the internet and sending mail, you need *much more* than what Ubuntu offers out of the box.
For my take of desktop Linux OSes, have a look at one of these: Mepis. Libranet. SuSE. Mandrake. Linspire. Xandros...
Just a random selection and there are plenty more.
