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.

Ubuntu the best?

Sorry, that is a comical notion to me. Like the reviewer I have been
around the block with many distributions, and many of the ongoing
versions of the various distributions, from Redhat 5.2 to Fedora Core
3. From SuSE 7 to Novel 9.

And many of the "little" distros, as well, including Vector, Mepis,
Libranet and a bunch of other Slackware and Debian clones.

What is my default? The "best?"

Mepis. Try it. ;)
