Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu It's been like 3 hours without an Ubuntu article, so here we go. "With the release of Ubuntu 7.04, Feisty Fawn, I naturally couldn't resist taking Kubuntu, my preferred Ubuntu version, for a quick spin on my trusty old Thinkpad testbed. Here is a six-step process through which I speedily arrived at a highly usable, fully capable desktop Linux system."

No, I haven't Archie!
It was not my plan to install Ubuntu, anyway, since I don't really like distro, but rather to run tests in Live CD mode.
The more I try Ubuntu the more I'm inclined to install something elese and as of recently my favourites are all
Slackware based distros Vector 5.8, Zenwalk 4.4.1 and GoblinX 2.
However, as of now Xandros 4 is sharing disk space with Win XP Professional on this powerhouse from Lenovo (http://tinyurl.com/ysagfm) but I think soon it'll be FreeBSD 6.2 since Atheros wi-fi LAN driver is available.

Wait, are you telling me that all these distros have LiveCDs now? Otherwise, it seems as if you're comparing apples and oranges, i.e. a LiveCD (that may not work 100% with your hardware) with a regular install (which may in fact work *better* with your hardware). That doesn't seem like a very fair comparison...
