Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu My search for "the perfect Linux operating system" this time brings me to the latest incarnation of Ubuntu, version 5.04, also known as the "Hoary Hedgehog Release". Previously I was using Fedora Core 4, however due to some minor bugs it had, I wanted to try something different.

I actually think that the Ubuntu installer is elegant - simple, fast and effective. It suits its purpose well, and with Breezy the second stage install will be unified with a similar progress bar.

On performance, Ubuntu does the job extremely well. My computer is really fast, even with the equipped i686 kernel.

I agree. Ubuntu's installer does its job well. there are definitely parts that could use better documentation for newbies (partitioning for those who choose to leave the defaults is probably one, though I don't really remember clearly at this point)

I do hope that the Ubuntu people *don't* follow this reviewer's advice regarding installers - Anaconda is a horrible installer - way too inflexible and crash-prone.
