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 have fooled with the live version and installed hoary last night, compared to Mepis, Ubuntu has a long way to on my old machines. Everything has worked for me in Mepis, not so with Ubuntu. I spent half the night trying to get stuff to work that should have worked right after install.

This is just my opinion though.
