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.

You guys are being too tough

I think some of you guys are being too tough on this distro, it's only its first release, I cant remember a distro that wasnt a little buggy on its first release.

I was also wondering how many apps are in the repository, right now I use Mepis, is it worth the switch?
