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.

Try MEPIS

Try MEPIS!
No configuration required on Laptop, Dell desktop, Clone desktop 1, or Clone desktop 2! None, Zero, Nada, Zilch… It just works!!!
I have been using 6 months now, no Windows!!!

My only regret, I miss trying out new versions of Linux, but MEPIS is so cool and everything just works, I do not really feel the need to try anything else! I do miss it, but my satisfaction with MEPIS over-rides my desire to play with other distro’s.

Getting back to Warty… I have been checking on the reviews and forums. There seems to be a lot of issues with it, but people like this guy just seem to make excuses for it.

A perfect distro would not require all that tweaking, at least not for me. If it was supposed to satisfy all my requirements, it would begin without a hitch.

But that is the fun of Linux. It takes all kinds of people to make a world go round.
