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.

I know I shouldn't feed the trolls, but...

Ubuntu may not be the fastest distro, but it has saved me a lot of time in configuration. I used to use gentoo and it was snappy, when it wasn't compiling something. And ubuntu plays mp3s just fine. I no longer have any desire to try a bunch of distros now that I have found ubuntu, and that says something for me.
