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.

Ubuntu not for power users?

There is a claim that Ubuntu is not for power users. I consider myself a power user, I've been using Linux exclusively for almost 8 years now. I've used the whole spectrum of Mandrake, RedHat, Debian, and Gentoo, and I'm a programmer and Linux Sysadmin by trade. I definately don't fit into the "casual user who uses the computer to browse the internet and read e-mail" category. I use Ubuntu for my office workstation and at home because I want something I don't have to mess with. I want something that I know will work without me. I get paid to administer Debian servers at work, and don't want to have to worry about taking care of my system when I get home. Ubuntu does a great job of spanning the gap between casual users and power users. It is a system that is powerful enough for a power user, but easy enough for the casual user.
