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.

google ext2ifs

Yeah great, ext2. Or ext3.. without journalling! I used ext2ifs for a while but I got sick of running e2fsck all the time. If it was a little more stable, maybe. I ended up going back to fat32 for crossplatform storage.

usable desktop, not like one described in the article.

Some "power user" not finding things the same as in his distro of the last 3 years doesn't make it unusable. I mean what'd he complain about really? Samba had a lot of options? Upgrade wasn't fire and forget?

Actually $100-200, for a _really_ usable desktop

Paying money for a usable desktop? That'd be OSX then.. ;) I mean Windows can be easier for a new user than Linux for sure, I don't recommend Linux for everyone. Not like I can recommend Windows either though, from what I've seen average Joe is quite succeptible to malware on Windows and doesn't know what to do about it. Oh well, Linux is easy enough for me, and Windows easy enough for you ;)
