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.

Perhaps replying to myself is a bit strange, but I have been accused of lying and intellectual dishonesty here, and I object strongly to that.

So, to back up what I am saying, here is a complete set of screenshots from an Ubuntu Edgy Eft install to hard disk from a liveCD:

If you have a blank system, you do not even have to worry about partitioning ... just accept the default (as you would for Windows install on a blank system).

Well, imho you're entirely right. I don't understand how someone can honestly say linux is more complex than windows... Ok, in some area's, it can be. But in many, windows is just a mess compared to linux...

It does depend on what you try, on the apps, on the DE, but overall - linux is ahead.
