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 dig the Ubuntu. It's a great Desktop Linux where most everything Just Works. Also it's not cartoony like other Desktop Distros, it dosn't try to baby the user but give them a well rounded setup. I've noticed some bugs in Ubuntu on some people's hardware, like this weird video desync when some one logins with a incorrect passwd. Also their Ubuntu package repositories need more apps. A working Fluxbox with Menu building support, BMP and its plugins, root-tail, torsmo, to name a few. I hope some of those are included by now.
