Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu I've been an Arch user for roughly 3 years. I'm pretty much familiar with it all - The way it boots, its configuration and its package management. I've also heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, and wanted to try it for a long time. So, two weeks ago, I took the plunge. These are my findings.

Seems like he went through some hurdles getting things updated to the 6.10 release, but overall is seemed to go well. I would agree that GUI config tools for many things in Ubuntu are lacking.

It seemed a little convoluted ... the guy actually wanted Kubuntu 6.10, but he installed Ubuntu 6.06, upgraded to 6.10 and then to Kubuntu 6.10. How is that for weird?

Anyhow, it's commendable that the resulting system worked fine afterwards. Coming from a Windows world, I'm not used to upgrades that work fine (or that work at all for that matter).
