Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "It's out love for Ubuntu that I'm being so harsh in this review. Look where we're at -- 7.04, a number of significant releases since 4.10 Warty three years ago -- and it still can't manage the display properly. I had great expectations for 7.04, and unfortunately they're not all met. If you're a fanboy, don't read on, because I'll shatter your fragile world." More at APCMag.

According to Wiki, there are over 300 Linux distros :-)

You can try every single one until your hard disk quits :-)

Or you can just install Windows

I am getting there.

its really difficult to have the willpower to just rid yourself of windows for many reasons.

I am a Red Hat Certified Engineer and I have servers setup at home however for my desktop OS I have yet to settle on a good distro. Perhaps I will dish out my own.

Well then you're already in the right place. I'd say SUSE or RHEL/Fedora and their close derivatives are the best.

I stopped caring about the 500 flavors when I found Fedora. I realized it can do everything all 499 other flavors could, but with superior security innovations.

Windows is good as well but I'm beginning to feel more at home with Linux within a couple years than 13 years with Windows. I guess it because Linux doesn't treat me like a clueless computer idiot if I don't wish it to. If I want to get my hands dirty, I can dissect the OS piece by piece.
