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.

Feisty 64 has been the Linux distro that has cemented 80% of my home computer usage. It does things right, the development process has been painless on my part and where an issue bug reports submitted with resulting fixes.

I use it for Audio and video playback as well as basic office and internet duties. It does this well, requires no maintenance and I can also use Cedega on it to play RedOrchestra, the about only game I play, although I do dabble with Quake 4 and it runs native on Feisty better than under XP.

Feisty is shaping up to be a great Linux Distribution. Not a BeOS but definately up there with Windows and OS-X, maybe better. If I could run Reaper on it natively with my VST's, then I wouldn't run Windows at home.

At work, we have to wait for Adobe to get their shit together and then I would change in a flash. Less time wasted hand holding Windows is more time to make money for me and my business.
