after flip flopping distros (suse 9.2, Fedora, MDK 10.1, Mandriva 10.2, Kubuntu and Ubuntu) for the past 2 months, I think I am finally settling on Kubuntu. Although getting very proficient at seeting up a linux box! It is a distro that I have been drawn too. I get rid of it, but it always makes its way back. It seems every didtro has something about it I like....and dislike. And if you have used Kubuntu, it does still have some maturing to do, but all in all, it is going well. Kubuntu Likes: -- apt-get (with and without synaptic - universe and multiverse)... awesome! -- Menus - edit very easy and programs create shortcuts on nearly everything unlike some other distros. -- KDE 3.4 - very XP like in a sense of the bubbly animated look. me personally, I dont like all of the animation...just my opinion, but atleast you can turn it off. all in all, KDE 3.4 is awesome. Dislikes: -- Still needs to mature - has some bugs (streaming audio, network sharing - kcontrol admin) - more updates would be nice. -- SUDO -- WTF? I dont see the purpose of this..
