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.

GOOD DISTRO!

Ubuntu Feisty Fawn looks like a good distro, but they should offer codecs and graphics card drivers as an option during installation.

If they did they would have to pay licensing fee's to the respective owners. The way it is now, a third party supplies those packages and the Ubuntu team stays "clean". Feisty is shaping up to be a pretty good desktop not BeOS good, but on par with Windows and Mac OS X.
