Ubuntu for easy setup
I used ubuntu hardy for a long time but switched to sabayon now.
Hi to everyone here - my first post!
I'm a CentOS 5 user with it configured as a desktop, and a happy user at that. I only ran the (K)ubuntu live CD on this machine to test it - was impressed by the GUI but otherwise saw no reason to change.
CentOS is very conservative, and I like that. Rock-solid and dependable. Unlike Fedora (used it before CentOS), major version updates won't come along every 24 weeks with the potential to cripple your install. Presently, I double-boot it with Server 2003. Another box double-boots XP and Windows 7, while a third is plain vanilla XP.
I using CentOS too, for my education.
What linux distro do yo

And I want to use it, and I want to use it well. I want to use it to try a Linux distribution that I have never tried before.
Ultimate Edition 2.4 x64
Linux Distro of choice
I have dabled with Ubuntu a couple of times.
Ubuntu is about the easiest and a good one for the uninitaited to paly with although all that brown is a bit off-putting
I am running Win7 Ulimate64Bit now (cool) and I have installed Sun's Virtual Box. In there I have installed WinXP, Ububtu, Open Solaris(not nice).
I like the idea of using free open source software but I get bored very easily and cant be bothered trying to get to grips with issues. I also find that forums are written by uber nerds and their advice is impossible to follow.
Looking forward to the Google OS

to add to the list, mostly Debian(gnome) when i have time.
I don't use ubuntu core at all, does alot of cludging with weird packages(see EXT4 and ubuntu), and just makes it hard to follow for me(yes they have a forum and it easy to follow). I don't care if i have the latest OS enhancements. And of course i still am a XP user dualboot.
My choice: Kubuntu 9.10. I've installed some distro such as Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Debian. I discover that Kubuntu is the best because it's the most beautiful with KDE invironment.
Been dabbling with Ubuntu for a few years, and since I fried my XP install, have loaded Ubuntu again.
My first experience with Linux was with ubuntu 6.06, and an utter fail. Tried again with 8.04, learned a lot there.
Now with 9.10 x64, and finding things a lot easier with it.
Used Fedora for a couple of years and have now switched to Backtrack. Loving it!
Lovely UBUNTU 9.10
Debian testing with KDE
It's not easy, but the .deb packages are excelent
Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope
I was dual booting Ubuntu 8.04 with Win7, to be honest though i got rid of Ubuntu in the end. I find Win7 much , much better and more pleasing to the eye.
After dealing with many distros, I realized that I'll only choose a debian based distro (synaptic rules!)
My choice for now is Ubuntu/Kubuntu, because I can find a lot of already compiled applications for it.
same i still run ubuntu in virtual machine though so i can look at porn without worrying about spyware
