Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu For over six years I have been hunting for a Linux distro that would allow me to replace my Windows installation. I've tried many versions of RedHat and Mandrake, and more recently, Gnoppix, Kanotix, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Knoppix. In my evaluations, I would start with high hopes that the latest and greatest distro would install smoothly, support my hardware, and create a genuinely usable system, but none of them really worked--until now. I recently came across the first distro that satisfied all my requirements: Ubuntu.

A lot can change in six years....

Linux development is pretty fast paced, a lot can change in six years. You might find a lot of the other distros you tried earlier are now at the same position.

On the other hand, I love ubuntu myself and install it for all my friends who are new to Linux aswell as on several of my machines here. Great distro.
