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.

Well, it depends.

If you can tell a user, if you want to change your IP address, change this line in that file and do "/etc/rc.d/network restart". This is something rather easy and the user can write it down.

Arch is so "KISS" that most operations needed by a desktop user basically aren't going anywhere beyond.


I don't think an Ubuntu user without advice would survive a really critical long time. If he would, he is not the "new user" we are talking about. So if he gets some advice, arch _can_ be easier to learn, as it is more straight forward ("here is your editor, that are the 3 files you need to know")...
