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.

Kanotix does not install a pure Debian Sid system on your machine.

Actually, when I tried to install the newest version it gave me two options: I could either install Kanotix (with all the Knoppix add-ons) or I could install plain Sid. I think that what they call Sid must be compatible with Sid (more than Libranet at least. I used that before Ubuntu, and it required some forcing to turn into Sid. Worth doing to have new apps with that nice adminmenu.)
