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.

Yes, my Home Basic came with Aero (minus the visual tricks) -- composite was enabled by default on Vista. There was hardware acceleration, shadows etc.

I only tried Compiz on Ubuntu though, and I didn't stay on it very long because I found some major problems with it. I didn't try Beryl in there because I don't want to screw up the system between AIXGL/XGL and Compiz/Beryl. I will just follow whatever Ubuntu decides to use as their default, although my personal preference is AIXGL/Beryl (just without these silly-loaded pref panels). Beryl moves forward faster than Compiz /me thinks.
