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.

Good article

This article pretty much mirrored my experience with Ubuntu, with the exception that I installed it on a Duron 1GHz-based desktop system. I'm actually back in Slackware for the time being because the Duron motherboard died, and Slack is faster than Ubuntu on the old PII I'm borrowing from a friend. I'm hoping I'll be able to afford to build a new system by the time Hoary is officially released; I still love Slackware, but now that I've gotten used to Ubuntu and apt-get I can't wait to get back in there.
