Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu During my 8 years of Linux on and off usage I have tried more distros than I have chocolate bars. Each one of my previous encounters meant that I had to spend at least 2 days configuring before I have a desktop that I was somewhat comfortable with. With Ubuntu Feisty Fawn's latest test beta --for the first time ever-- this was not the case. I was up and running with all the niceties I wanted within 2 hours.

Linux is definately ready. Now what's left is to consider the maturity of the economics of it.
Or really, it comes down to a religious view.
I touched on the subject in a chat the other day aswell.

Depends on what you call ready, if you read Eugenia's post, you may have noticed that initially the display was garbled.

She was able to fix it because she is an "expert" in Linux, for a beginner (or someone not interested in wasting his time), this would have been a show stopper..

Myself I failed to intall Kubuntu 6.10 due to a garbled screen, Mandriva 2007 worked. While it's quite nice there are very basic usability mistake..

For example, with Xgl, when I put the mouse in the up-right corner to close a window, quite often the 'Expose' effect kick-in, which is quite stupid (it should have been activated from the low-right corner, the only corner not used).
