Ubuntu is easier to install and easy to use. Also complicated or old Pentium 2 systems can succesfully be recovered with (K)ubuntu. Fantastic operating system, with 18600 open source programs available to install, directly from the universal repositories!

i'm really trying to get into using linux, but it can be such a pain still. i always have problems with my network, and there isnt solid support for tablet pcs yet.

hopefully impeccable ibex does me well

Not only is it good, but it's evolving fast - new versions every 6 months (upgrades are automated online)> Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2008 09:27:25 -0700

I've used Ubuntu for the last 2 years. It's been mostly stable (though I'll admit it's not the most stable Linux I've used), virus free, hassle free and free (as in beer). If your needs are basic home computing, then this might be for you.

Downside: Gamers will be disappointed, some hardware can be a bitch to get working (though this is getting better) and a few vital applications aren't available and have no decent FOSS equivalent.

Basically, it's free to try and you don't even have to install it. You've nothing to lose!
