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.

Actually, even in regular Ubuntu you can connect to samba shares without having to fully install samba; just type in smb://hostname in Nautilus or use "Places->Connect to Server..."

I also agree, IPP is the only way to handle printer sharing these days, though standard Ubuntu will connect to SMB printers quite easily too.

Yes, you have to use Connect To Server because browsing shares is broken Gnome. That is really lame.
