Yup... Kubuntu or Mepis....I use Kubuntu.

I honestly think Kubuntu with Crossover is perfect for a workstation. That way tou get all the sweetness of Linux with KDE, and the ability to run Windows apps without the restrictions you get from using Linspire broken packages.

why the fud about linspire in your post ?

anyway

kubuntu is nowhere near stable on one of my test machines. Mepis runs perfectly on the same system though.

I agree with you on crossover, I use it to run IE... and yes, you can get infected with spyware under IE and Wine..

"I honestly think Kubuntu with Crossover is perfect for a workstation."

Doesn't that equal Xandros basically?
