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.

One distro market

I find it amazing how this is the only distro that is basically rehashed over and over. Being a Red Hat advocate since 1999 Fedora Core is available and it is a excellent choice for the desktop. Plus several others to many to mention with stronger points than Ubuntu it is so biased towards this distro. Are they paying for ads on this site or is it hyping it up to become the only 'one' or NO other choice in a Linux distro.

Ubuntu to me is just another Windows it has Gnome as the standard forcing the user to use it or try installing KDE and hoping for the best when something does not work.

I have not seen any adds for Ubuntu but I swtiched long before there was so much new about it. Its simply a good distro. I was a Redhat user before the fedora thing, but never 'felt' comfortable with it after starting to use Ubuntu. But then again, neither one of them is as good as FreeBSD ;)

I fail to see how the same does not apply to Fedora too.
